The general entry requirement is an undergraduate degree or diploma, preferably in agriculture or the sciences.
A student who has a matric (Grade 12) and has passed the Junior Certificate Course with a Merit Pass (65% and above) will also be entitled to enroll.
A student who only has a matric (Grade 12) certificate will be considered, depending on the outcome of an assessment and interview process.
Since the courses are delivered in English and all assessment are carried out in English, students must be able to read and write in English. Tests of approximately two-hour duration are written after completion of each subject.
