Entrance evaluation or Portfolio
There are two routes into FEDISA:
The first, and preferred, is the onsite entrance evaluation and interview. Once application documents have been received by the Head of Admissions, prospective students will be invited to the institute for an assessment session.
Students should note that the duration of the assessment is approximately two hours. No portfolio work is required in this instance.
Secondly, those applicants who are unable to present themselves at the institute for the assessment and interview may submit a prescribed portfolio of work together with the application documents. Please contact the institute for the prescribed format and content of the portfolio submission.
Foreign applicants or South African residents living abroad will be allowed to submit electronic copies of their portfolios, provided that these can be substantiated with the original if so required at a later stage.
Closing date for all applications
The closing date for preliminary applications each year is the 5 December.
Should you have missed the closing date, late applications will be considered until the 15 January, provided that there are still seats available. Please note that a “late application fee” is payable.
The result of the application will be communicated once the selection committee has made its decision.
