What is the process for Varsity College registration?

It is important to note that there are a limited number of students accepted to programmes at Varsity College each academic year. For all students registering for a Degree, Diploma or Higher Certificate a non-refundable fee of R400 is required. Any late registrations or applications for degrees will only be considered should space be available and a penalty of R1750 levied. Once payment has been made a student advisor will be in contact with you to complete your application process. Applications for second semester part-time studies for new or returning students are also open and are accepted on a first come basis.

It can be quite overwhelming for students or parents to register online, especially for confidentiality purposes. However, each Varsity College campus has a well-trained team of registration assistants. They will ensure that you are guided through the process of registration and fully equipped for the start of your academic year.
