Ad Eundem Gradum application procedure

From the Rhodes Calendar:


Persons admitted to a qualification under this rule must have a minimum of a National Senior Certificate/matric or recognised equivalent. As the rule itself is for consideration in exceptional cases, the waiver of this minimum requirement will only be considered by Senate if a case is deemed extraordinary. Persons who have graduated at another university who demonstrate that they have met the exit level outcomes, or who are able to give a portfolio of satisfactory evidence that demonstrates informal learning and mastery of competencies at the exit level of the qualifications at the NQF level(s) required for admission to the degree may be admitted as students to courses of special study and research at the University, depending on their suitability for admission. Such persons may, on completion of such courses, be admitted to a degree of Master; provided that they before being so admitted: 

49.1 have paid such fees as may be prescribed; 

49.2 have completed the work for the degree, as a registered student of the University, for the prescribed period of the degree; 

49.3 have attended at the University such courses as may be prescribed; 

49.4 have undertaken research upon a subject approved by the Senate; 

49.5 have presented a satisfactory report, dissertation or thesis upon the research undertaken; and 

49.6 have complied with such further conditions as may be prescribed by the Senate. A comprehensive table reflecting the exit level outcomes as approved by Senate must accompany the application and form part of the portfolio of evidence. The portfolio must include SAQA documents for the NQF levels missed.


Please refer to the updated policy with regards to Ad Eundem Gradum applications.
