Nelson Mandela University received a total 67 022 first year undergraduate applications, and 21 791 postgraduate applications for the 2022 academic year.
This, in comparison to the 82 173 and 16 013 applications, respectively, received for the 2021 academic year.
The release of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) results by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) will see the cohort of provisionally accepted students receiving their firm offers based on their individual results. Applicants need not arrive on campus to submit their results as the University receives these directly from the DBE. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their applications via SMS.
Nelson Mandela University will be accepting late applications from 25 January to 4 February 2022, only from applicants who meet the direct entry requirements for those programmes that are not yet full. Prospective students do not have to arrive physically at University campuses to apply for the available programmes as applications can be made online only. No applications will be accepted after 4 February 2022.
Prospective students who, for various reasons, do not have placement at a tertiary institution for their 2022 studies are encouraged to use the opportunity to apply for placement using the government’s Central Applications Clearing House (CACH).
CACH will provide unsuccessful applicants with access to career development services and, where possible, an opportunity to access spaces still available within all universities, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges or any Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) learnerships, without having to travel to institutions to try to find a space.
As the University gears towards the start of lectures on Monday, 14 February 2022, it is important to note that it is still operating within a global pandemic. As such, COVID-19 compliance measures remain in place.
