4. Science & Agriculture Foundation Programme

The Science & Agriculture Foundation Programme (SAFP) is an entrance programme intended to provide a strong Science and Agriculture foundation to students who do not meet the standard Faculty entry requirements. The SAFP is an extended programme which involves the spread of the 1st year level modules over 2 years. This is a mechanism of giving support to students who did not meet the requirements needed to do the mainstream programme. This therefore means SAFP students take an extra year to complete their degree. All students who do not have a matric exemption (matric written prior to 2008) must apply for conditional exemption. Life, Knowledge, Action (LKA) is followed as a value-added module.

However, if you meet the requirements and wish to apply to study this course. You can simply check the application processes.
