You can not really “transfer” from one university to another! You will have to apply to study at the UFS and should have the necessary qualifications as prescribed by the UFS. Apply at https://apply.ufs.ac.za/ or phone 051-4013000 and ask our marketing office to send you an application form.

This is not an automatic procedure – it is actually a complicated and long procedure! The UFS cannot automatically give you credit/acknowledgement for a module passed at another university. We should first establish exactly what is the course content (syllabus) of those modules, the credit level as well as the academic quality. This evaluation is done by the head of the department where each specific module is taught at the UFS. To enable these persons to consider if you may receive credit/acknowledgement for the module done at another university, he/she should have the exact course content (syllabus) at hand. You should obtain this information from your previous university on a hard copy and this document should be attached to your application at the UFS.

In short:
Send you application form to the UFS, together with the documents as stated on the application form (ID, Senior Certificate, Proof of payment etc).

Also send your academic record from you previous university, showing the modules that you have passed as well as a document with the course contents (syllabuses) of these modules.

If you are still busy studying these modules, or awaiting you results – please send the course content (syllabuses) in any case to enable the UFS to establish if you will qualify for credits /acknowledgement for the modules when you pass them. The closing date for this application for credit/acknowledgement is 30 November. Please indicate clearly which modules you are applying for to be credited/acknowledged.

Please do not wait until you have you final results available (i.e. in December or January) to apply for credits/acknowledgement because that will leave us with too little time for the credit application process. The professors who should decide about your possible acknowledgements (credits) will not be available after the date stated above. If this process is not completed by the date of registration, you will have to wait until the next registration occasion to receive the credits/acknowledgements. We do not have the resources available during the registration process to apply for your credits/acknowledgements!! You can apply at https://apply.ufs.ac.za/.

To study a B.Com. degree at the UFS you should have an Achievement Point (AP) of at least 28, as well as Grade 12 Mathematics on level 4 (50%). You do not meet these requirements because your AP is less than 28 and you should register for the 4 year B.Com. degree. In this degree you will study 3 development modules in the first year together with three modules from the mainstream B.Com. degree. In the second year you will do the remaining modules of the first year mainstream B.Com. After successfully completing these first two years of the 4 year B.Com. degree, you will be allowed to change to the B.Com. degree of your choice and your will then be on the second year level of that degree.

To study a B.Acc. degree at the UFS you should have:

  • An Achievement Point (AP) of at least 34
  • Grade 12 Mathematics on level 5 (60%) and
  • Grade 12 Eng on level 4 (50%).

Students enrolled for the B.Acc. degree but who do not pass EFIN1614 in the first semester of the first year will not be allowed to continue with the B.Acc. degree and will be converted to the B.Com. (Accounting) degree in the second semester of the first year.

To study a B.Com. degree at the UFS you should have an Achievement Point (AP) of at least 28, as well as Grade 12 Mathematics on level 4 (50%). You do not meet these requirements because your AP is below 28 and your Mathematics mark is not suitable. Because your AP is between 24 and 27 you may only be allowed to study the 4 year B.Admin.degree In this degree you will study 3 development modules in the first year together with three modules from the mainstream B.Admin. degree. In the second year you will do the remaining modules of the first year mainstream B.Admin. After successfully completing these first two years of the 4 year Admin. degree, you will be allowed to change to B.Admin. and you will then be on the second year level of that degree.

The B.Acc. degree is the shortest route to meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Accountant (SA) qualification. You can also qualify as a CA (SA) with B.Com.(Accounting) degree, but it will take you one year longer. The entrance requirements are also different and are listed below:

For admission to the B.Acc. requires:

  • An AP of at least 34;
  • Grade 12 Mathematics on level 5 (60%); and
  • Grade 12 English on level 4 (50%).

For admission to the B.Com. (Accounting) requires:

  • An AP of at least 28;
  • Grade 12 Mathematics on level 4 (50%); and
  • Grade 12 English on level 4 (50%).

Students apply before the end of October for registration in January the following year. Although you do not have your final Grade 12 certificate available yet, the admission officer will consider your current record and your Grade 12 subject choice to establish if you will be able to qualify for the degree that you apply for. You will receive a letter informing you that you will be allowed to register for the degree, provided that your final Grade 12 results will lend you access to the degree.
