Does UJ want Grade 11 results?

Your grade 11 report is required when applying at UJ, especially if you are currently in grade 12. If you have completed your grade 12 and have a national senior certificate, you should upload your matric results under the grade 11 results tab but this applies to those who have lost their final grade 11 report.

How many choices can I apply for at UJ?

You can only apply for two choices at UJ. However, your first choice should be a course you are REALLY interested in and that you meet the admission requirements for. For example if nursing is your passion, then it should be your first choice. 

Can I apply again at UJ after being rejected?

If you have applied before (Previous Years) at University of Johannesburg, you can apply again at UJ for the next academic year. You need to ensure that you meet all the admission requirements for the course you are applying for to avoid history repeating itself.

  • Then Upload all of the required documents, including your NSC certificate or equivalent international qualification, identity document or birth certificate, passport (if applicable), and recent passport-size photo.

Tips to re-apply at UJ:

  • Make sure you meet all of the admission requirements for the course you are applying for.
