Admission Requirements

The Centre for Environmental Management can only accommodate a limited number students per year in the PG Dip IWM. Students are therefore selected through a competitive process by a panel of academic staff from the Centre for Environmental Management.

Minimum requirements

The minimum requirements to be considered by the selection panel are:

  • A recognised qualification relevant to integrated water management at NQF level 7 (typically a BSc qualification or equivalent).
  • Working experience within the water sector will be an added advantage.

In addition to these minimum requirements, applicants will be evaluated based on their academic transcripts and a written essay, which form part of the application process.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

Applicants who have a formal qualification at NQF level 6 (typically a 3-year Diploma), but who have extensive work experience in the water sector, may be referred for the RPL process. This process is handled by the University of the Free State RPL Office and involves compiling a portfolio of relevant work experience.

Potential RPL candidates should apply for the PG Dip IWM, using the standard application process. Suitable candidates will be referred by the selection panel to enter the RPL process after provisional acceptance.

Applicants should not enter the RPL process unless they have specifically been referred by the selection panel.
