Foreign Qualifications | SACAP


Foreign Qualifications

In accordance with South African law, non-South African citizens must have a valid study permit in order to be admitted into any qualification.

The study permit/visa must be valid in terms of both the time-period for the full duration of study, as well as the name of the learning institution.

Furthermore, foreign applicants must have their highest qualification assessed, verified and certified by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) for minimum entrance requirement comparison before they can be considered for admission into a SACAP qualification.

If you hold an international qualification, you will need to convert your qualifications onto the South African NQF levels in order to apply to study at SACAP.

Please contact South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) to apply for your conversion. You will be able to apply at SACAP once you have confirmation/receipt of application for your SAQA Conversion for a provisional acceptance. Once SACAP receives your completed SAQA Conversion you  will be able to receive your full acceptance (should you qualify).
