A matriculation exemption (Senior Certificate with Endorsement) is a legal admission requirement for Auckland Park Theological Seminary’s Bachelor of Theology. You can however apply for matriculation exemption from the Matriculation Board under certain conditions.
Who can apply for matriculation exemption?
- If you are a South African student older than 23 years and did not pass your Senior Certificate with endorsement, or
- If you are an International student older than 23 years wishing to register for first-degree studies at Auckland Park Theological Seminary then you must have your school qualifications evaluated by the South African Matriculation Board. They will then issue a certificate of exemption to those who qualify.
How long does it take to obtain a certificate of exemption?
According to the Matriculation Board it takes 5 to 10 working days to obtain a provisional letter which is sufficient to get admission to Auckland Park Theological Seminary (subject to the applicant meeting the ATS’ requirements).
The actual exemption certificate is issued by the Matriculation Board in approximately 6-8 weeks after receipt of all relevant and correctly certified documents as well as the requisite payment.
