Support for prospective students
Universities South Africa oversees support for learners who aim at studying at a South African university. It manages matric exemptions.


South African Learners

The Matriculation Board works primarily with learners who did not achieve a matriculation exemption.

Foreign students

The Matriculation Board will help you assess your current qualifications to determine if they are suitable for South African universities and, if not, how to go about getting the correct exemption. If you have any concerns about your matriculation exemption or need to find out how to get an exemption please visit the Matriculation Board website.
