Verification for Education Students:

ALL Students who have successfully completed the Diploma in Education (Pre and Junior Primary), Bachelor of Education Honours (Pre and Junior Primary, Senior Primary and Secondary Education) are required to submit to the graduation helpdesk their Original Grade 12 Certificate AND a certified copy of the Grade 12 certificate to verify their graduation eligibility. This requirement is strictly mandatory before graduation.

For the Education students who fail to comply with this arrangement:

  1. their names will not be transferred to the Final graduation list and hence will not graduate
  2. their certificates will not be printed
  3. the qualification annual result which states that they have completed and “qualified for the Diploma or Honours Degree in Education” will not be inserted at the end of their academic transcripts.
  4. They will only be allowed to graduate in future when they submit their original grade 12 Certificate and a certified copy of the Grade 12 certificate as required.

If you are an education student and were admitted through Mature Age Entry or through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), you are not required to submit your Grade 12 Certificate but a copy of your Mature Age Entry Admission Letter (a letter of your mature age tests results) or the RPL/Exemption letter issued to you on admission.

The sooner you submit the required documentation, the sooner your name will be transferred to the final graduation list and the sooner you will be certified as having qualified for the award of your education diploma or degree.

Can I still graduate with the old curriculum Certificate of Administration, Higher Certificate, Higher Diploma, and the old Honours Degree in 2022?

The old curriculum Certificates of Administration, Higher Certificates, Higher Diplomas, and Honours Degrees were phased out at the end of 2017 and students had a transitional period of 2 years until the end of 2019 to complete any outstanding subject (s) and still qualify for the award of these old curriculum qualifications.

Students who completed these old curriculum qualifications within their validity period (i.e. by the end of 2019), and for some reason the qualifications were not printed, can still apply for these certificates and will be printed in retrospect.
