Tips for reading the CUT programme page

The page has all the faculties in one place! You can browse through our entire selection of programmes.

The tables have 3 elements:

  1. The programmes (what NQF level it is, and the qualification type). How long you will spend studying this and with what type of qualification you will graduate.
  2. Minimum points (APS). Next, it is the minimum points needed to study the programme. Minimum points to study at CUT are 27. Some programmes need more than the minimum. Between 24 and 26 you may be eligible for the selection test but if the programme is full of applicants who meet the minimum and above, you are not going to be given the opportunity. Try to have more than the minimum. It should not be your target number.
  3. Next, we tell you the minimum level of achievement you need per school subject. In the table above the faculties, each subject is given M – Maths, E – English. The points you get for the percentage earned in a subject is at the top of the table. Add those numbers 4 + 3 + 4 to get your APS.

NQF 5 – 1 year full-time
NQF 6 – 2 years full-time
NQF 7 – 3 years full-time

For prospective students with NC(V) or N4, N5 and N6 qualifications
