DUT Undergraduate Scholarship: For New Students (First Academic Period)

This award is made to first year full-time South African students who have obtained excellent results in the National Senior Certificate in the preceding year which takes the form of a tuition fee remission as follows:

12.1.1     A New student who has obtained a National Senior Certificate with an aggregate of 80% or higher shall qualify for a 100% remission of tuition fees for the first year of registration (subject to 12.1.3 below).

12.1.2     A New student who has obtained a National Senior Certificate with an aggregate of between 70% – 79% shall qualify for a 50% remission of tuition fees for the first year of registration, (subject to 12.1.3 below).

Important Notes

12.1.3     The calculation of the aggregate percentage is made by the DUT, and is based on the sum total of the percentages achieved for individual subjects (excluding Life Orientation) divided by the total number of subjects taken. Where a student has taken more than seven subjects, the aggregate percentage of the six highest subjects (excluding Life Orientation) is calculated.
