The Clearing House service aims to match applicants’ exam results and study preferences with places that need to be filled, but we cannot guarantee that you will be offered a place. We shall take your matric results directly from the Department of Basic Education. If you want to study at a specific institution only, you should not apply through CACH but contact that institution directly. If you have already applied to a University and have not heard from them, please contact them to find out whether they can offer you a place.
To apply for a place at one of the two new universities, select the University name and qualification name from the drop down lists. You will then be contacted to provide additional information.
It is probable that most of the places available at Universities through CACH will require good performance in subjects such as Maths, Physical Sciences and Life Sciences. To increase the range of opportunities, the service has been extended to include registered private colleges as well as Further Education and Training Colleges, and you are also advised to investigate other options.
An offer of a place does not automatically guarantee funding and you should start looking for funding as early as possible. Good sources of information are http://www.careerhelp.org.za/ and http://www.careersportal.co.za/bursaries.html Study loan information is available from http://www.nsfas.org.za/ and http://www.eduloan.co.za/ Student loans are also offered by ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank.
CACH and the institutions will use the contact details you provide – please ensure that you check for emails and text messages frequently.
