Studying at Mamelodi


Message from the Dean

Dean of the Mamelodi Campus - Prof Nthabiseng Ogude

Welcome to the University of Pretoria. Thanks for choosing UP! Our Mamelodi Campus is a dedicated campus that provides a strong foundational basis for students in the faculties of Natural and Agricultural Sciences and Economic and Management Sciences.

At the University of Pretoria, our way of life is called THE UP WAY. It’s how we teach, learn, innovate and create, have a positive impact on society and live our lives in an ethical, respectful and caring way.

At our campus, we provide a high quality of teaching and learning support. The Mamelodi Campus does this with smaller classes and personalised and individual attention that caters to your unique needs while bridging the gap between school and university. This means that when you go on to classes at our Hatfield, Onderstepoort or Prinshof campuses, you’re in a better academic space with a solid grasp of foundational academic concepts in your field of study.

Numerous studies have shown that students who began their academic journey at UP’s Mamelodi Campus have done much better academically in their studies, overall, than students without the strong foundation that we help you with.

You’ll also learn to put your skills to good use by learning what it takes to get your first job or start your own business. You’ll have a positive impact on society too through our community engagement projects. You will make friends with classmates who are just as dedicated as you are to using the chance you’ve been given to work hard and excel in your career and make a difference.

#ChooseUP! We hope to see you next year.

Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences
Extended Programme

The extended programmes of the Faculty of Natural & Agricultural Sciences have lower entrance requirements and are designed for students who are not academically prepared, but who are willing to work hard to succeed and obtain their degree.

Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences
Extended Programme

The range of extended programmes (four instead of three study years for a three year B degree) at UP have lower entrance requirements than other three year programmes and are designed to accommodate students who are academically less prepared, but who are willing to work hard to correct chinks in their academic armour, thus earning success and eventually a degree. The programmes include an additional year of study during which students’ basic knowledge and skills are enhanced before progressing onto more focussed studies in the last three years of their chosen degree programmes.

Programmes offered in the field of economic and management sciences are BCom in Management or Financial Sciences.
