General Rules and Regulations

SAQA registration
SAQA is currently in the process of completing a very comprehensive project to ensure that the correct qualification/programme information and requirements i.e name, NQF-level, minimum number of credits required for obtaining a specific qualification is available. In this regard, UP reserves the right to prescribe the requirements as reflected in its HEQSF-aligned and approved PQM for programmes leading to UP qualifications. This means that there may be instances where the information or requirements on the SAQA database differ from that prescribed by UP for a specific programme leading to a UP qualification, or it may not be available as yet. In such event, the information and requirements provided by UP and specified by UP in the relevant UP Yearbook will take precedence over the SAQA database. All students wishing to qualify for a UP qualification will thus have to comply with the requirements determined by UP as published in the relevant UP Yearbook.

The information published here is subject to change and may be amended after the publication of this information. The General Regulations (G Regulations) apply to all faculties of the University of Pretoria. It is expected of students to familiarise themselves well with these regulations as well as with the information contained in the General Rules section. Ignorance concerning these regulations and rules will not be accepted as an excuse for any transgression.
