Life Orientation is excluded when calculating the APS.

Prospective students with an APS of 26-27 must write the National Benchmark Test (NBT). Final admission is determined by the Admissions Committee of the Faculty and is based on the results of the NBT.

Application Process
Application Fees for South African & SADC Students: $18
Application Fees for International Students: $18

UP applications open on 1 March of the year preceding the year of study.

Each prospective student must complete only one online application. On the online application, the University of Pretoria offers a first and second choice in terms of what you wish to study. All applicants should fill in both a first and second choice on the online application.

Once your online application has been processed, you will receive a student number(EMPLID).

Receiving a student number (EMPLID) does NOT imply that you have been accepted by the University of Pretoria yet. Admission is a separate process that your application undergoes after being evaluated by the relevant faculty.

It is in your best interest to complete your own online application. The University of Pretoria does not make use of representatives, agents or agencies during the application process. If you choose to make use of representatives, agents or agencies, you do so at your own risk. It is of utmost importance that you provide your personal email and postal addresses to enable the University of Pretoria to communicate with you directly.

International students need to comply with immigration requirements. For assistance and enquiries, email isd@up.ac.za.

The registration guidelines show you step by step on how to register successfully. In case of difficulties, contact the online registration help desk on telephone +27 (0) 12 420 5347 or email at registration@up.ac.za.

Various holds may prevent you from registering successfully. Please check for holds on the UP Student Centre.
