Applications open on 1 March of the year preceding the year of study. You may apply electronically at www.up.ac.za or you may use the application form, which should either be submitted at the Client Service Centre or mailed to the University.
Please attach proof of payment, cheque or postal order to the application form. Please do not send cash through the mail or leave documents and cash with any unauthorised persons!
Please note that each application form has a unique number which is printed under the barcode on page one. This number is repeated on each subsequent uneven page number. It is therefore imperative that you do not mix pages with different numbers or application forms. For this reason the University will only accept original application forms. Faxed, scanned or emailed application forms will not be accepted.
Each student must complete only one application form. On the application form the University of Pretoria offers a first and second choice in terms of what you wish to study. All applicants should fill in both a first and second choice on the application form.
It is important to note that should you wish to study the selection programmes BSc(Arch)(Architecture) or BSc(Int)(Interior Architecture), you must indicate them as your first choice on your application form, or you will not be considered for these programmes. It is also recommended to indicate the other selection programmes as your first choice on the application form.
The Online Application System is intended for use by new prospective students submitting an application to UP for the first time. Thus it is not intended for students presently registered at the University of Pretoria.
Please make use of the online web application form at www.up.ac.za/apply, which includes instructions for completion of the form. Please note that with online applications the application levy of R220 can only be paid by credit card. (UP)
