The new Masters-degree in HRM (full thesis) on NQF level 9. Admission requirements a NQF level 8 qualification.
The HR department’s programme qualification mix has changed according to the Higher Education Qualification Sub-Framework (HEQSF) and will in future replace the current BTech with an Advanced Diploma on NQF level 7; and Postgraduate Diploma on NQF level 8.
The Advanced Diploma date of implementation is estimated in 2024/2024and the Postgraduate Diploma in 2024. Students who currently hold a BTech (level 7) cannot go straight into the new Master’s degree (NQF level 9). CPUT will accommodate them by offering two subjects as articulation to bring them to level 8 in order to progress to level 9. These subjects are Research Methodology 5 and Modern Themes in HR Management 5. Students will be required to register for these subjects for non-degree purposes which will be offered as from 2016. Students with a relevant Honours degree on NQF level 8 can commence with the master’s degree on level 9 without the articulation subjects.
