Rejected at University? Here is what you can do.

There are plenty of paths that students can take to reach their goals.

Look for TVET colleges that are still accepting applications

There are a number of ways to find out what colleges need more applicants. Your high school guidance counsellor can help you find colleges that are still accepting students. 

Make sure that you don’t apply just to apply. Do your research and make sure that the TVET colleges you are considering submitting your applications to are the colleges you would be happy to study at and offer accredited courses. 

Apply at a private college

Fortunately for many students there is a second option. Private educational institutions provide students with the option to achieve their National Senior Certificate, diploma or higher certificate through distance or face-to-face modes of study. The current education landscape provides various opportunities for you to explore alternative ways of studying such as you could do matric via correspondence study. Again, do your research.

Take a gap year to learn new skills 

For many students who had a difficult or unsuccessful admissions process, a gap year can be a great option to consider after high school.

Apply early to study the next year

Whether you take a gap year, apply to study at a private or TVET college, or just take some time to work and gain real-world experience, you’ll need a plan of action. Make sure that you plan for the year ahead and the following year so that you avoid disappointment.

Don’t let college rejections keep your from pursuing higher education.

There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
