This three year full-time BSportSci programme will consist of two specialist qualification pathways, namely Biokinetics and Sports Science. The first two years of study will comprise a generic curriculum shared with all BSportSci students that will include basic and applied sciences of the human body. At the end of the second year selection will take place on academic merit and students will branch into the specific Sports Science curriculum or Biokinetics curriculum up until the completion of their three year of studies. The first year of internship for the Biokinetics students will run concurrently with their third year. Then the Biokinetics students will proceed with the BScHons in Biokinetics with the second year of their internship. The four-year Biokinetics programme (3 + 1) is in line with the new regulations of the HPCSA for Biokinetics training which all universities that offer this programme will follow. The Sports Science students have the option of proceeding with the BScHons in Sports Science, enrol and complete the PGCE or start working in the sporting industry.
Selection is based on academic merit, using a combination of the the Admission Point Score (APS) and the National Benchmark Test (NBT) as well as a Value-Added Questionnaire (VAQ). For final selection, certain minimum achievement levels are required (refer to the minimum requirements on page 1). In the case of candidates who are still at school, the Grade 11 final examination marks are used as the basis for provisional selection. One hundred (100) students are selected on academic merit for the first year of study.
