How many points are needed at NWU?

The number of points required to be admitted to North West University (NWU) varies depending on the specific program and the level of study. NWU uses a points system to determine admission, which takes into account a combination of your National Senior Certificate (NSC) or equivalent results and other factors such as language proficiency, subject choices, and additional qualifications.

To give you an idea, for undergraduate programs, the minimum number of points required for admission typically ranges from 26 to 38 points, depending on the program. However, some programs may require a higher number of points or have additional selection criteria, such as auditions or interviews.

For postgraduate programs, the number of points required may also vary depending on the program and level of study. Generally, you would need to have completed a relevant undergraduate degree and achieved a certain level of academic performance, as well as meet any other additional requirements set by the program.

It is important to note that admission to NWU is competitive, and meeting the minimum points requirements does not guarantee admission. The university also takes into account other factors such as the number of available spaces in each program, the number of applicants, and the quality of applications received.
