Extended Degree Programme
The Extended Degree Programme (EDP) was introduced to assist students with proven potential but without adequate schooling in mastering their degree programmes. An additional year of study is added to a mainstream degree programme to form an EDP. This extra year is utilised to prepare students, by means of additional academic support, for specific mainstream subjects and for university studies in general.
Any student who is admitted to a mainstream programme may apply for admission to the relevant EDP. Based on school results and/or the results of any assessment or test, including the NBTs, prescribed by the University, a student may be advised or compelled by the Faculty to follow the EDP route.
The minimum admission requirements for the EDP in the programmes are set out in the Selection guidelines and admission policy for undergraduate programmes for the Faculty of AgriSciences. For full detail, visit: http://www.sun.ac.za/english/maties/Documents/AgriSciences.pdf
