B Com Extended Curriculum (Accounting)
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.
Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting (Extended Curriculum) (B Com 4 Acc) (KN-P-BCO/KN-W-BCO)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.
