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:
- Have reached the age of 23 years on 1 January of the academic year for which admission is sought.
- 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 NUST language proficiency test in English at a level which enables them to commence programmes of study as approved by Senate.
