Now that you’ve decided to take the next step, this is what you need to know about applying for the EMBA at the UCT GSB.
Initially, you will progress through a pre-application manager which you will receive as a unique link via email once you have enquired or applied on our site. This is an important first step before your application begins, to set you up with UCT GSB’s admissions team; your support along the way.
If you would like to prepare in advance, please refer to these guidelines:
Please collate the following documents or speak to the necessary parties in order to make your application process more efficient.
Submit your information online, using the unique portal URL we email to you after you enquire or choose to apply on our site. This allows us to get to know you and gives you the opportunity to gather all your information in one place. You can leave and return as you need to before making your final submission.
Once you’ve been through the pre-application manager, you will be prompted to complete and submit your UCT online application here, in order to create your student record.
For this step, you will be required to submit certified copies of your identity documents, certifications and a sponsorship letter, if applicable. This is also your introduction to the UCT admissions process and requirements, which will include personal particulars, motivations, linguistic competencies and your work and academic history.
Due to operational disruptions caused by COVID-19, please confirm your document uploads from step #2 above by uploading them again via your unique UCT GSB pre-application link.
This will allow the admissions administration team to process your application faster and more efficiently, and helps to ensure that your application submission is complete and accurate.
Pay your administration fee in order to cover the administrative costs of your application.
