    I am currently studying for a NQF6 accredited Psychology Diploma at a correspondence institution. After I have completed my qualification , I would like to study the Bachelors Degree at SACAP for the advantage of having work-integrated learning included in the programme, is this possible? My Matric certificate is a diploma pass and not a bachelor pass.
