How do I apply?
You are encouraged to submit your application online, for admission to Undergraduate studies (order of choice does not matter) however, should you experience technical difficulties in doing so, you are encouraged to download an application form at https://www.wits.ac.za/applications/choosedownloads and have it submitted to the Student Enrolment Centre (by hand or registered mail) for processing.
Certain programmes have additional selection procedures, e.g. portfolios, essays, auditions, NBT.
