Change of Mind

Walk in application process

The Grade 12 results have now been released and you may consider applying to UKZN or to ass choices to your application.

To do so you will have to visit either Howard College, Pietermaritzburg or Westville campuses from 6 January 2015.  For a limited period we will consider walk in applications and change of minds on campus only. 

New applications or change of minds will only be considered where spaces are available and only if all entrance requirements have been met.

Note that the number of applications  received by far exceeds the number of spaces available and applicants just meeting the minimum requirements may not be considered.  No places are guaranteed.  

Note that Education and Health Science programmes have closed already and they will not allow late applications.

International applications closed on 30 September and new applications will not be allowed in January.

No new applications or change of minds will be accepted via the CAO in January.

Once you have submitted a new or change of mind application you can check the outcome of your application on-line from home.
