How to Apply to the University of Johannesburg
Want to study at the University of Johannesburg?
When Should I Apply?
Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible in the application cycle, which commences in April of every year. The University of Johannesburg has two different methods of applying – students are able to apply online or via a paper-based application. Students have the option to choose only one of the above mention methods.
South Africans learners wishing to apply online can find the UJ Online Web Application here and will need a working email address and an ID number. Foreign learners wishing to apply will need to have their passport number.
Students wishing to apply via a paper-based application can find such application here.
Applicants are required to pay an application fee of R200 if they are applying with a paper-based application form. Applicants applying online do not need to pay an application fee.

Submitting Results and Documents:
School learners must ensure that all examination results from Grade 11 until September of Grade 12 are submitted. Failure to do such may result in delays within the student’s application process. You might find that you applied early in Grade 12 and thus only sent in your final Grade 11 results. If this is true, as the year progresses and you receive more results keep sending them through to UJ, that way they will have all your results by the time finals come around.
Transferring students should too ensure that all transcripts and academic records are submitted as early as possible as well as that a final transcript of current studies being undertaken reaches the Admissions Office as soon as possible after receipt.
Once you have applied, keep a look out for your acceptance and/or provisional acceptance letter. You are encouraged to monitor your application status at all times, and can do so here.
If you still have questions, be sure to check out the UJ information and Guidelines for Applying page.
