Students register for a three-year national diploma, after which – pending approval by the Head of Department – they qualify to enrol for a fourth year of study to obtain the Baccalaureus Technologiae and/or Bachelor’s degree in those programmes in which such degrees are offered. An exciting opportunity at the certificate level is available in certain programmes. Education students register for a four-year degree, after which – pending approval by the Head of Department – they qualify for the BEd Hons degree.

Applied research is accorded high priority at CUT. Structures have therefore been created to carry out this important task with excellence. Although an urgent need exists for practically oriented contractual and developmental research, there are also ample opportunities for staff and students to conduct research with a view to improving their qualifications.

A Graduate School has also been established with the primary aim of overseeing the development of research at the postgraduate level.

In light of the new National Senior Certificate (NSC) that was introduced in 2008, two sets of criteria are used for admission to CUT. Candidates who obtained the Senior Certificate in 2007 or before will still be evaluated and selected for admission on the basis of the old scoring scale, while candidates who obtained the NSC in 2008 and thereafter will be evaluated on the basis of the new scoring scale. Both these scales are discussed in more detail in the paragraphs that follow.
