Fedisa Admission Requirements

Fedisa Admission Requirements

Minimum Requirements
In order for applicants to be considered for the Diploma in Fashion Merchandising, Marketing and
Media prospective students must comply with certain minimum requirements.

Minimum Academic Requirements
• National Senior Certificate or international equivalent, with appropriate subject combinations and levels of achievement.
• A Higher Certificate or Advanced Certificate in a cognate field.
• Recognition of Prior Learning

Language Requirements
• Pass in either of TWO of the official languages of South Africa, one of which must be English.

English will be the primary medium of tuition at FEDISA and students cannot be guaranteed that instruction will necessarily be in their language of choice.
Applicants should further note that the above admission requirements are minimum requirements
only. Admission to all programmes is subject to selection procedures and meeting the minimum
admission requirements will not necessarily ensure admission to a programme.
Admission to all programmes is subject to an entrance evaluation and a rigorous selection process.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
“Recognition of prior learning (RPL), the process of assessing and accrediting acquired knowledge and/or capabilities of a person, gained in formal, informal and non-formal learning, against a set of outcomes in a formal course of study or a set of workplace or
social competencies.” FEDISA subscribes to the practice of “recognition of prior learning”, which will be applicable to mature applicants (22 years +), which will be evaluated by means of a practical assessment, portfolio submission and interview.

Required Secondary School Subjects

No specific subjects are required at the secondary school level for admission to FEDISA. While art, design and mathematics are an advantage, they are not a requirement.
