Application Process

Step 1: Enquire - If you would like more information about the course, contact your nearest AFDA campus to book for a Career Consultation to meet with a staff member who will advise about the course and can assist with your application process. If you do not require information, then proceed with Step 2.

Step 2: Apply - Complete the application, attach your report/academic documents and submit an online application form OR submit a manual application form by contacting the campus.

Step 3: Provisional Acceptance - AFDA Will contact you regarding acceptance into the course. If you have achieved the minimum number of points to make you eligible for a bursary from the DTEF, you will be required to apply to the DTEF for sponsorship. The DTEF will advise AFDA about your sponsorship conditions which shall cover tuition and administrative charges. For private students, bank statement or bank guarantee letter will be required.

Step 4: Register – Once the DTEF has given AFDA the guarantor letter, you need to register online. Registration fees will be billed on sponsorship. Self Sponsored/Private students must pay their Registration fee at this time. Registration payment will secure your position for enrolment.

Registration payment will be the only guarantee used to secure space for enrolment

Step 5: Enrol - Present yourself at the campus for enrolment. Bring two passport sized photographs.

Please note that the DTEF revises eligibility criteria annually for sponsorship. Contact the campus for details or assistance.
