International students who do not have permanent residence in South Africa or who are not South African citizens need to follow the steps below:

Consult their embassy/ Department of International Relations/ South African Embassy for specific prerequisites with regards to the legal requirements for registration with a South African academic institution.

Step 2

Obtain:

  • An official provisional admission letter from Milpark.
  • Proof of medical cover. The relevant South African law states:

  • Proof of sufficient funds to cover tuition fees, maintenance and incidental costs.
  • Proof of a cash deposit or bank guarantee equivalent to airfare or transportation costs to the student’s country of origin for repatriation purposes or forfeiture to the state should permit conditions not be complied with.
  • A medical certificate — a clean bill of health is required.

Step 3

Apply for a study permit by submitting Form 1 to the local Department of International Relations/South African Embassy.
The student will need to provide the embassy with an undertaking that they will leave South Africa on completion of her/his studies.

NB: Students should await the outcome of their application prior to making travel arrangements to South Africa.

Step 4

If a student is able to obtain a study permit on time, then they may continue with their application for full admission and registration for their selected modules.

NB: A certified copy of the International student’s passport together with a certified copy of a valid study permit must/will be kept in the student’s record file at Milpark Education. If a student is unable to obtain a study permit on time, then they must postpone their programme until the date on which they are in possession of a study permit.
