How to complete your PGDip application for February 2020


 

Now that you’ve decided to take the next step, this is what you need to know about applying for the PGDip at the UCT GSB. 


Step 1: Prepare the following documents

  • CV
  • Three motivation essays
  • Two evaluator's forms. Approach two individuals who know you in a professional context, and who are not family members, to complete the confidential evaluator’s forms. Please ensure each evaluator completes a form and emails it directly to GSB admissions.
  • Certified copy of your degree certificate and academic transcript (not necessary for UCT qualifications)
  • Certified copy of ID or passport
  • Proof of payment of the non-refundable application fee
  • International applicants whose first language is not English should provide a score of 600 on the TOEFL test or an overall band score of 7.0 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

Please courier or hand-deliver hard copies of these documents (but not the evaluator’s forms) to GSB admissions at the Breakwater campus.
Note: Each certified copy of qualifications, transcripts, ID or passport must carry an original stamp from a Commissioner of Oaths. Documents which have previously been certified and then photocopied are not acceptable.


Step 2: What to do if you are an RPL candidate

If you have not completed a degree, or NQF level 7 equivalent, you can apply through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) route and submit the Portfolio of Learning (POL) assessment form.
You are also required to write the AQL section of the
 National Benchmark Test (NBT).
