If you wish to study at a South African university in 2022, you should track the universities application dates to know when your school of choice opens or closes applications.
The best way to ensure that you are accepted at the university of your choice is to apply as early as possible.
South Africa has many excellent higher learning options to choose from. However, due to the growing number of first-year students, many learners don’t get the opportunity to study further directly after high school.
Check out the opening and closing application dates below to find out when you need to apply.
Some universities have multiple closing dates as faculties have different deadlines. To find out which date will apply to you enquire at your intended university.
