Calculating Admissions Points Score (APS)
The percentages achieved in National Senior Certificate examinations (preliminary and final examinations) will be allocated an admission score equal to that percentage. The sum of six subjects, excluding Life Orientation, but including English. Results below 40% for any subject do not attract a score. For more information on the APS or your own eligibility, please go to the UCT Admission requirements page.
ALL applicants must complete the webform and submit the following:
Dance Video Instructions can be found here. (only if you've applied for Dance)
Theatre Video Instructions can be found here. (only if you've applied for Theatre)
Reference Letter Instructions can be found here.
All students will study together for the first part of their course, during which time they will be exposed to the various areas of concentration on offer in the Centre. At the same time staff will have an extended opportunity to gauge the capabilities of each student and to be able to advise more accurately the direction each individual student should follow. After this period, students will be place into six possible areas of concentration; Acting, Dance Performance, Performance Making (Theatre Making / Choreography), Applied Performance & Education, Scenography (Design), and Academic Study (Theatre & Dance Studies and another major in the Faculty of Humanities). While no student can be guaranteed entry into any area of concentration, every attempt will be made to match students with the area of concentration that is most appropriate to their skill set.
All students will be accommodated in one of the areas of concentration at the end of their second year of study, however if a student wishes to change their registration to another programme in the faculty in the end of the first semester, they will have enough credits from the first semester to transfer without a loss of time.
Should you have any further questions, please contact Shabnam Pansari (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Note that for all Professional Practice Programmes, an audition is necessary to be considered for admission.
