CACH Services Are Closing Soon


If you didn't get a place at the University or College you wanted, don't stress, you still have a chance to get into a higher education institution all thanks to the Central Application Clearing House.


The Central Application Clearing House (CACH) can help you get into a University or College even if you didn't get the place you wanted. 

CACH is an integrated referral service for Post-School Education and Training institutions and students.

CACH a temporary mechanism created by the Department to assist the following applicants:

  • applicants who either applied on time to their institution of choice but their application was unsuccessful and now it is too late to apply elsewhere
  • applied on time and met the entry requirements based on their Grade 11 results but find that they now do not meet the entry requirements when their grade 12 results are released

Through CACH, you can also receive career advice, referral to other opportunities such as being referred to other universities, TVET college opportunities, artisan development opportunities and other possibilities.
