Good morning
I would like to apply to do the bachelors degree in teaching I am currently doing a higher certificate course at Embury but did not complete it. I got a HG pass in Matric so I would like to know if I apply to Unisa to do my bachelors degree in Intermediate phase what would my requirements be and how do I go about it?

Hello,

Please read the following;
What are the requirements to study for a PGCE at Unisa?
Each PGCE qualification has different requirements as they’re set for different stages in the education sector. These include the Foundation Phase and ECD, Intermediate and Senior Phase, and Senior Phase and FET.

Requirements for Unisa’s PGCE qualifications include:

  • Foundation Phase and ECD: Bachelor’s degree or equivalent as well as completion of at least 1 school subject at a 2nd level (minimum) and 2 official languages at 1st level. APS Score = 50
  • Intermediate and Senior Phase: Bachelor’s degree or equivalent as well as completion of at least 2 school subjects at a 2nd level (minimum) and 2 official languages at 1st level. APS Score = 50
  • Senior Phase and FET: Bachelor’s degree or equivalent as well as completion of at least 1 school subject at a 2nd level (minimum) and 2 official languages at 1st level. APS Score = 50

As you can see, not all requirements are the same when it comes to the PGCE. It’s best that students know exactly what their options are when going down this route.

However, the Foundation Phase/ECD and the Intermediate/Senior Phase PGCE qualifications HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED and will only be offered at Unisa until 2021. It’s only available to students who have already registered for the qualification.

At the same time, the Senior Phase and FET PGCE (among other qualifications) will not be available to new students at Unisa from 2020 and onwards. More on these developments can be read online here.

If you do not at least meet the minimum admission requirements for the PGCE, then Unisa will reject your application.

Unisa has also plugged the gap for students who want to do PGCE modules for non-degree purposes (NDP). Students will have no choice but to apply for a PGCE qualification.

Best regards.
