How to enrol

Things to know -

  • You are required to complete your SAIBT Diploma in the number of trimesters shown on your offer.
  • International students must have a minimum 75% study load each trimester (3 or 4 courses), this can be less in your final trimester. Local students can study less.
  • You must enrol in Stage 1 courses before enrolling in Stage 2 courses
  • You must complete pre-requisite courses first
  • Every student has been given a personalised offer based on their previous academic study. This means you may be required to do a different number of courses to other students.

Complete the steps to create your study plan -

STEP 1 - Look at your offer letter

STEP 2 – Working down the list, enrol in subjects on the SAIBT Student Portal that you HAVE NOT been granted exemptions for. Your maximum Study Load per semester can range from 75% (3 courses) to 108% (3x 25% courses + 1x 33%). Your Study Load will be listed in the SAIBT Student Portal.

EXAMPLE: The student in the offer letter example provided has been granted exemptions for Business Studies 1, Information and New Media Technologies, Media & Society and Mathematics and Statistics. This means they would enrol in Academic Research and Critical Enquiry, Communication: People Place and Culture and Business Studies 2, in that order. This student would need to successfully complete all Stage 1 courses prior to enrolling in Stage 2 courses.
