Things to note when applying via hardcopy:

  1. The “old fashioned” way usually takes longer, so you’ll have to be patient.
  2. Make sure you have attached all relevant supporting documentation.


NWU Application Fees

South African applicants are required not required to pay an application fee. International students need to pay R550 upon application.

Submitting Results and Documents

School learners must ensure that all examination results from Grade 11 until September of Grade 12 are submitted. Failure to do such may result in delays within the student’s application process. You might find that you applied early in Grade 12 and thus only sent in your final Grade 11 results. If this is true, as the year progresses and you receive more results keep sending them through to NWU, that way they will have all your results by the time finals come around.

Transferring students should also ensure that all transcripts and academic records are submitted as early as possible as well as that a final transcript of current studies being undertaken reaches the Admissions Office as soon as possible after receipt.

Please Note: Some courses require you to write a selection test. Once you have applied, the faculty will invite you to come in for a test. Find out more about this selection test here.


Make sure to also submit the following:

  • Copy of your ID
  • Proof of Payment for the application fee
  • Any additional documents which may be relevant to your application.

You’re almost done! Now all that’s left to do is to wait. Keep a lookout for your acceptance and/or provisional acceptance letter. You are encouraged to monitor your application status at all times.
