REMARKS

a.Admission requirement(s):

A Baccalaureus Technologiae: Dental Technology.

In addition, a candidate should successfully complete Research Methodology in the first year of study if it was not included in a previous qualification.

Holders of any other equivalent South African or international qualifications may also be considered, but will have to apply about six months in advance for the recognition of such qualifications. Candidates will be required to submit an evaluation of their qualifications by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) with their application forms for admission. The Faculty reserves the right to assess these qualifications and the applicant’s suitability/ competence for admission to the programme. Proof of English proficiency may be required. Depending on the nature of such an equivalent qualification, the completion of certain additional subjects may be required.

Please note that only certain South African qualifications are accepted to register at the South African Dental Technicians Council. Candidates should therefore familiarise themselves with any requirements set out by the Council before registering for this programme.

Selection is based on a personal interview with a departmental selection panel. Registration prior to the approval of a research proposal is provisional and will be made official only when the proposal is approved by the Faculty Committee for Postgraduate Studies. These proce- dures will be fully explained to all prospective students during their personal interviews.
