Our Schools Liaison Officers visit a vast number of schools and advise learners about admission requirements, career opportunities, degree courses offered at Wits, fees and funding, student life on campus and the University's core function. Other services include presentations to Grade 9, 10, 11 and 12 learners, participation in University open days, parents evenings, career exhibitions, career evenings and campus tours.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic some temporary adjustments have been made to the 2021 admission criteria for Health Sciences programmes.
The following requirements have been waived:
- National Benchmark Test (NBT) for all Health Sciences applicants
- Certificates of Attendance for applicants to Dentistry, Oral Hygiene, Occupational Therapy, and Physiotherapy
These requirements will be reinstated in 2021 for the 2022 student intake. Applicants are encouraged to focus on their academic performance in 2020 and to familiarise themselves with the relevant professions via online resources.
