SELECTION CRITERIA OF SENATE DISCRETIONARY ADMISSIONS FOR ANY
OF THE UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMMES IN SPORT, RECREATION, AND
EXERCISE SCIENCE
J.122   Selection Criteria
        Subject to the general university admissions requirements for Senate
        Discretionary admissions, a student must have completed and submitted
        the following:
J.122.1 TELP Test (A minimum mark set by the Department is required)
J.122.2 Medical Clearance (Absence of medical or health problems)
J.122.3 Parental Indemnity Endorsement for minors
J.123   Tracking of SD students
        All students who have been accepted by the SRES department for
        registration must do so under the following registration code, viz.

SRES SD REGISTRATION: 8094
All the SD students will be monitored closely throughout the period of their studies,
especially during the first two years. This is done in order to ensure that they adhere
to all requirements and targets set in each of the courses and, more importantly, to
                                                                                     2


ensure the successful completion of their first two years of study. Thereafter these
students will follow the normal curriculum as stipulated for all senior students.
SRES Programme for SD Candidates
Students who have been accepted under the SD rules must adhere strictly to the
academic programme prescribed for them by the SRES department, and as such
will not be allowed to register for any additional courses or modules. The course
prescribed in the BA Preliminary Year is integrated with the general curriculum of
the BA degree in Sport, Recreation, and Exercise Science, and as such SD students
will accumulate credits towards their BA degree on the successful completion of the
Preliminary Year. In addition, the inclusion of the SRES Practical into the BA
Preliminary Year curriculum is done in order to assess these students capabilities
and disposition towards one of their major courses, which they will continue to follow
in subsequent years. Similarly, the inclusion of the Faculty Foundation Course is
done in order to ensure that these students are suitably proficient in English and
computer literate, as well as being orientated with the philosophy and background of
health care professions in general.

All SD students accepted by the SRES Department must take the following two
courses comprising a total of 5 modules with a total credit weighting of 51.75 credits.
