Rhodes University APPLICATION 2022 General Requirements

RU general admission requirements

  • Your admission to RU is dependent on you meeting the specific admission requirements for your chosen qualification.
  • If you don’t meet these requirements, you may want to consider alternative qualifications or possibly, if you qualify, an extended programme, enabling you to register for limited modules in your first year.
  • Students who completed Grade 12 at the ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) School of Tomorrow may no longer be accepted at RU.
  • Some RU qualifications have limited spaces available. Meeting the general and / specific admission requirements for a qualification does not guarantee that you will be offered a space for the 2019 academic year.

Online vs Postage/Courier

Some universities use an online application system, while others only accept hard copies. Some offer both. Take this into account when starting the application process.
