Application Fees for UL

South African applicants, who apply using the hardcopy application, are required to pay an application fee of R220 before the application form can be processed.  

International applicants, applying using a hardcopy form, will need to pay an application fee of R330.  

Please note that this fee is non-refundable.  All applicants must attach a copy of the proof of payment to their application form.
Tip: keep the original proof of payment, just in case.

Submitting of Results and Documents

Here’s the deal: you must ensure that all examination results from Grade 11 or Grade 12 are submitted. Failure to do this may result in delays with your application process. Not cool.  All the documents you attach will need to be certified copies of the originals.  

Are you a transferring student?   If yes, make sure that all transcripts and academic records are submitted as early as possible.   It is also important to make sure that the final transcript of your current studies reaches the Admissions Office as soon as possible.

NOTE: Once you have sent in your application, wait a minimum of 4 weeks before checking your application status.
