There are universities who accept late applications for students who did not apply during the initial application phase. There are many reasons for this, some students did not qualify for the courses they wanted to apply for but due to hard work they have gotten good Matric results in their final high school exams, and now qualify to apply for their preferred courses.

Here is a list of South African Universities currently accepting late applications in 2019:



UJ (University of Johannesburg) - Have said they will not be taking walk ins, all late application enquiries to find courses that still have space shall be conducted online from the 7th of January (07:00) to the 11th of January (16:00) find out more here: https://www.uj.ac.za/studyatUJ/Pages/Late-Enquiries.aspx

TUT  (Tshwane University of Technology) - also from the 7th of January 2019 - 11th of January, they are encouraging online applications and discouraging students from doing walk-in late applications in 2019. Go here to apply: https://www.tut.ac.za/study-at-tut/i-want-to-study/appli-info/application-form

UNISA - Registrations opened on the 3rd, they have not said anything about late applications but in 2018 they re-opened their applications on January 15th so it is worth going to your nearest Unisa office to enquire. And keeping an eye on their social media and website.

University of Limpopo - https://www.ul.ac.za/

Nelson Mandela University - https://www.mandela.ac.za/Apply/Admission/How-do-I-apply again they extended their application deadline in 2018 to the 12th of Jan, so there is a chance they are doing it again this year. It is advisable to go and enquire about your chosen course incase there is still space or to get waitlisted.

DUT (Durban University of Technology) - their website states that all courses are full however should a space become available after registration you may still be contacted if you fill in a late application enquiry form here: https://www.dut.ac.za/late-enquiries-form/

MUT (Mangosuthu University of Technology) - Accepts late applications but you pay a late application fee. Go to https://www.mut.ac.za/how-to-apply-to-mut/ to enquire.

Please try and enquire at as many universities as possible so that you can be placed on a waiting list. Online applications have made it easier so that you don't have to physically travel to each university. The truth is students with good marks early on apply to multiple universities and get many offers, some may not take the offers at the university that you apply to which then opens up a free space for someone on the waiting list.

If you cannot find space in a state owned university you can always apply to go and study at private colleges that offer courses, just be sure to check that they are registered and legit.
