General Info
The Polytechnic offers Full-time (FM), Part-time (PM), Distance Education (DE), and extra-curricular courses. As of 2010 the Polytechnic of Namibia will be enrolling more than 11000 students. The medium of instruction is English. Three hostels on campus provide a bed-capacity of 429 to both male and female full-time students. Cultural experience enriches the individual as it also gives a broader understanding of the world experience. It brings about a better sense of tolerance and an overall improved understanding of the diversity of other cultures - national and internationally. For this reason, the Polytechnic encourages the establishment of cultural societies on campus. The Polytechnic also offers a wide range of student services, and sports and recreational activities.

Application for Admission based on Advanced Standing:
The Registrar may, upon recommendation of the Dean and Head of Department grant admission with advanced standing i.e. admit applicants with credits on completed qualifications from other accredited institutions of higher learning to higher study levels within a programme.  Granting such advance standing shall involve an evaluation of the volume of relevant credits presented and the attainment of core competencies (learning) within the curriculum of the programme.  An original transcript should be attached to the application.
 
Admission based on Advanced Standing Form
 
Application for Resumption of Studies:
Students who previously studied at the Polytechnic of Namibia and have gained credits towards completing their qualification, but who have interrupted their studies for a semester or longer, must apply for resumption of studies by completing the prescribed form, before they will be allowed to re-register.
 
 
 
Post Graduate Studies:
Prospective candidates for the degree of Master shall apply in writing for admission to the required study year.  Each application shall be considered on its merit by the Postgraduate Studies Committee.  The general requirement for admission to the degree of Master shall be a recognized four-year Bachelor degree with a research component or an equivalent qualification as approved by Senate.
 
 
 
Additional requirements
Besides the General Admission Requirements, individual Schools and Departments may have additional or special admission requirements which will be stipulated under each qualification, under the heading "Courses offered by the Polytechnic."
 
 
Admission based on Age and Maturity
Applicants who do not meet normal admission requirements, but have at least a Junior Certificate or equivalent qualification, may, in the spirit of lifelong learning and redress of past disadvantage, apply for admission through the mature age entry scheme.
 
Applicants under the mature age entry scheme should:
a. Have reached the age of 23 years on 1 January of the academic year for which admission is sought.
b. Normally have completed their full-time school or college education at least three years before the academic year for which admission is sought. Selection for mature age entry will be, by means of appropriate written entrance tests, three years relevant work experience, satisfactory references and passing of the Polytechnic language proficiency test in English at a level which enables them to commence programmes of study as approved by Senate.
 
 
 
Foreign Qualifications:
The Namibia Qualifications Authority (NQA) evaluates foreign qualifications and if such qualifications are at Grade 12 level, the application will be considered for admission.  Foreign school qualifications from countries in the SADC region need not be evaluated by the NQA for admission purposes.  Please contact the NQA offices at:
