        Applicants who do not have a South African qualification are required to send their
        results/qualifications to the South African Qualifications Authority in order to have them

            CAPE PENINSULA UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY




           Applications for such evaluations should include:
           All qualification documents, i.e. the highest school certificate issued by the official exam-
           ining body; complete and legible transcripts of academic records in respect of all
           degrees or other higher education qualifications, together with the final certificates; pre-
           ceding qualifications leading to any postgraduate/other advanced qualification when the
           latter is submitted. Certificates in foreign languages should be submitted together with
           translations into English by a sworn translator. The relevant evaluation fee can be
           obtained from the South African Qualification Authority in Pretoria.
           In addition to the above, the candidate also has to apply to the SA Trade Representative
           closest to his/her home for a study permit if the candidate is not a South African citizen.

           Residences
           Residence accommodation is subject to availability, in terms of the rules, and will be allo-
           cated at the campus where the student will be studying. Residence accommodation is
           available to full-time students only. Students who are not awarded a place in a residence
           should arrange for alternative accommodation before arriving in Cape Town.

           Medium of tuition
           BELLVILLE CAMPUS
           The medium of tuition is English.
           CAPE TOWN, GRANGER BAY AND MOWBRAY CAMPUSES
           1.   Language is regarded as an empowering contributor to student success, and every
                effort is made to provide students with tuition and/or support in their first language.
           2.   Where viable (taking into consideration economic factors, class size, student pref-
                erences, the relevant discipline, the demands of industry), tuition will be offered in
                English and Afrikaans in separate classes.
           3.   Where it is not possible to offer tuition in English and Afrikaans in separate classes,
                the medium of tuition will be English. In such cases Afrikaans and Xhosa speaking
                students will be offered support, which may be by way of language-specific tutorial
                groups, the provision of notes and the setting of tests, assignments and examina-
                tions in the first language of the student.
           4.   Faculties/departments are allowed to determine how they implement this policy on
                the medium of tuition, provided that they conform to the overall guidelines.
           5.   In the event of the CPUT developing satellite campuses or new service points, the
                unique language characteristics of the relevant campus or service point will be
                taken into consideration within the broad contours of multilingualism as contained
                in the national constitution.
