B Soc Sc Extended Curriculum Programme

Alternative Access Programme
Many prospective students come from schools that have not equipped them for admission to university in that they do not obtain the required point scores for admission to specific programmes.  The University has developed innovative alternative access programmes to identify candidates who have the potential to succeed at university. Students identified by the programmes are recommended to Colleges. All final decisions are made by the Deans.

  • B Soc Sc Augmented Curriculum (KN-H-SO4/KN-P-SO4)

    This four-year programme, which is available at the Howard College and Pietermaritzburg campuses, offers access into Humanities and Social Sciences for students from disadvantaged school backgrounds. Quintiles 1&2 schools only. The extended curriculum programme combines credit-bearing modules with academic development and support over two years; students complete their first regular three creditbearing modules during the first year. The extended curriculum is structured to enable successful students to graduate with a BSocSc degree.

    Three-year B Com or B Com Accounting degrees extended over four years. The B Com requires NSC-Deg with APS of 30, English (HL or FAL), Mathematics and LO Level 4. Applicants who have not met Level 4 Mathematics but have Level 3 Mathematics will be streamed into the foundation year. B Com Accounting requires NSC-Deg with APS of 32 with English (HL or FAL), Mathematics Level 5 and LO Level 4. Applicants who have not met Level 5 Mathematics but have Level 4 Mathematics will be streamed into the foundation year.
    The one year foundation provision follows a full foundational model with students completing six foundational modules. These modules are preparatory to the regular first level courses in the main stream. The modules are essential for assisting students in developing the cognitively advanced English usage required for English as a learning tool, especially in discursively oriented disciplines such as management. Also the modules are intended to support the students in developing their basic quantitative and analytical skills required in subsequent Economics, Mathematics and Statistics modules.
