Diploma for Deaf Students

We are proud to be one of the few higher education institutions in South Africa that provide a Diploma in Information Technology specifically designed for the Deaf.

Overview

Our Deaf students get the same high quality education offered to their hearing peers as they all write identical assessments through their studies.
 

These students write identical assessments, tests and exams as their hearing peers, in order to graduate with an NQF level 6 qualification. This, combined with their year of workplace training, ensures that they can enter the working environment with confidence.

 

Our curriculum is customised for students who use South African Sign Language (SASL) as their preferred method of communication, and we provide SASL interpreters throughout the 3 years of classroom contact and 1 year of industry training.

 

This Diploma in Information Technology has the following specialisations:

We are continually refining and adjusting our approach for the benefit of our special needs students.

Additional information

  • A National Senior Certificate endorsed for a Diploma.
  • 50% or more for the Belgium Campus Aptitude Test.
  • An audiogram no older than 6 months.
  • A South African ID.
