Media Statement: Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University to finalise selection and admission of first entering students for 2022

Media Statement
Date: 18 January 2022
For Immediate Release

Every year, the Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University receives thousands of applications from prospective students who wish to study at the University. SMU has received more than 44 000 applications for first time entering students for the 2022 academic year while it only has space for approximately1 000 students.

All applications go through a rigorous and competitive selection process and offers are based on the admission requirements of different Schools. This means that attainment of minimum requirements will not automatically guarantee admission to the programmes offered by the University.

The pre-selection and admission of first time entering applicants was conducted in October 2021 by the Selection and Admission Committee of each School and final selection activities will only take place from 21 January 2022 subsequent to the release of the 2021 Grade 12 results.

Those who have applied are urged to check the status of their applications by clicking on the below link and use their student number as well as pin: link:

Successful applicants will be given up to three (3) calendar days to accept or decline the offer online. If they do not respond within the given time, their places will be given to other eligible applicants on the waiting list.

Registration for all First Time Entering Students will then commence on 01 – 04 February 2022. However, those who will not be in a position to finish registration on 04 February due to circumstances beyond their control will be given an opportunity until 07 February 2022 which will serve as the last day.

Registration will be online and students will be able to register for the modules and qualifications they were admitted into. Those who struggle will be assisted on campus at the University sports complex during working hours.

Students can call the following numbers for assistance: 012 521 4204/ 4319/4644/5057.
