Course Information and Fees
BTech: (Baccalaureus Technologiae)
Students who intend to enrol for this qualification for the first time in 2018 should note that it will not be possible to continue with any Baccalaureus Technologiae after 2020 as this category of qualification will be phased out.
This is of particular importance to dental technicians who wish to register in future as dental technologists, bearing in mind that only a person with a BTech degree may own and or supervise a dental technology laboratory. The latter does not apply to practitioners who had such rights obtained under older qualification. For clarity the SADTC can be contacted.
Potential students are advised to contact the Department of Dental Sciences to seek greater clarity in this regard.
The CPUT website can be visited regarding new qualifications which may not be in the university/ faculty prospectus.
For all Certificate, Diploma and National Diploma applications, consult the General admission requirements.
Some courses require students to submit additional information as part of their application.
For all Honours, Masters and Doctorate applications, consult the Postgraduate admission requirements.
All subjects are assessed on a continuous basis. Students are afforded, based on the reassessment policy and rules, opportunities to improve assessment marks.The summative assessment in the subject Applied Dental Technology 3 is subject to the approval by the SADTC who recognises the outcome of that specific assessment for registration purposes, in this case as a dental technologist. Please note: There are no reassessment opportunities for this particular summative assessment as students at this point must proof their competency in all aspects of applied dental technology in order to be registered as a practitioner.
The fees for 2020 reflected below may be subject to change.
