Other school-leaving qualifications may be accepted on their own merit as alternatives, and will be evaluated according to Regulation 7.3.1 (1)/(2) [GENERAL REGULATIONS PROSPECTUS 2014].

Places will be awarded on the basis of merit. Therefore the possession of a Certificate with the minimum score does not necessarily guarantee admission. Entrance is based upon places available within the faculties.

Faculty admission requirements are prescribed by each faculty. Prospective students must acquaint themselves with the faculty admission requirements as stipulated by the respective Faculty Special Regulations. Such requirements may include an admission test.

The University of Namibia reserves the right to interview candidates before admission.
