|Applicants are considered by an admissions committee in accordance with the Senate Standing Orders on Higher Degrees and the School of Law Standing Orders for Postgraduate Studies.
To be considered for entrance applicants must:
Applicants who have not achieved an average of at least 65% in the LLB or equivalent degree may be admitted but must, in their letter of motivation, satisfactorily explain their failure to achieve the required standard.
Students who do not qualify for admission to the Postgraduate Diploma in Law are strongly advised to register for one or more Mandela Institute Certificate Courses. Successful completion of a certificate of competence course increases your chances of being admitted to the Postgraduate Diploma programme. In addition, a student who is granted permission to convert, may obtain credits for some of the completed Certificate Courses provided they are equivalent to the Postgraduate Diploma courses. Please enquire about the equivalence of your Mandela Institute certificate course if you intend to enrol for a Postgraduate Diploma at a later stage.
