How to Submit Late Applications to Universities and TVET Colleges in 2018.

The Central Applications Clearing House (CACH) online application service for matriculants, who struggled to secure a place at the educational institution of their choice, will open from 5 January – 28 February 2018.

CACH services are particularly useful for applicants who applied for admission to a university or college in time, but have not been offered a place or their programme of choice.

It can also be useful for prospective students who achieved better than expected results, and now wish to access a different course or university or Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college.

Students who missed the application window period for one reason or the other can also use CACH services.

CACH was established in 2013 in response to the large number of applicants seeking entry to the Post School Education and Training (PSET) sector in January, when most universities have closed their application process.

It is provided by the Department of Higher Education and Training as a service that is free to both applicants and institutions.

Now in its fifth year, CACH has attracted 18 329 applicants.

A survey taken on 10 087 applicants in March 2016 revealed that 33% (3 328) of students had found a place in PSET or employment since contacting CACH.

A survey taken of 11 770 applicants in March 2017 revealed that 37.3% (4 390) of students had found a place in PSET, or employment since contacting CACH.

This reflects an increase of 1 062 learners finding a place in the PSET sector. The increase is an indication of the positive impact of CACH.

Alternatively, prospective students can call the toll-free call centre number on 0860 35 66 35 from 8am to 8pm.

Central Application Service

Meanwhile, the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) has recently approved a policy for the establishment of a Central Application Service (CAS) for PSET.

The policy is an initial step in the legislative process to establish a one-stop online application system for students to access multiple institutions without the need to queue at those institutions.

CAS is aimed at streamlining and simplifying the application and admissions process.

The new system will allow applicants to use the system for a range of tasks such as investigating opportunities, preparing, submitting and changing applications, and considering and accepting offers.

The CAS system will prepare application cycles, capture off-line applications, check and submit applications, communicate with applicants, resolve queries and refer rejected applicants to other opportunities.

PSET institutions will prepare programme data, receive applications, select and make offers, and register and admit students.

The main users of the system will be all entering undergraduates, who can apply for academic programmes, as specified by individual institutions.

It’s Only Blood: Shattering the Taboo of Menstruation by Anna Dahlqvist, Alice Olsson

The subject of periods has been one that’s been that’s always been somewhat of a forbidden topic. We’ve certainly made strides over the last few years when it comes to frank discussions about menstruation but many people still view it as a dirty bodily function and topic best not talked about at all.

Anna Dahlqvist’s It’s Only Blood takes a look at how and women around the world are dismantling the taboos and shame around menstruation and delves into why this is such a key factor in the fight for women’s rights.

Definitely an important book to read.

Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality by Sarah McBride

Sarah McBride, the current National Press Secretary at the Human Rights Campaign, has a story to share that’s universal and relatable to anyone who has ever struggled with their gender identity and finding the freedom to express themselves for who they are, and not who the world wants them to be.

In her memoir, she chronicles her journey of coming out and tackles topics like access to healthcare, bathroom access and what it means to be openly transgender in a world that constantly targets and harasses the transgender community.

When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Asha Bandele

I was having an interesting discussion with a friend who told me that one of her neighbours has always thought that Nelson Mandela was a terrorist.

It immediately got us thinking about how many people find it easier to defend a systematic structure of racism than it is to consider the humanity of those who are fighting against a wholly oppressive system.

I mean better the oppressive system then the freedom fighter, eh?

In her memoir, Patrisse Kahn-Cullors, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement asks the readers to remember why the marginalised protest, to acknowledge the vulnerability and threat on their lives and to listen and understand that the fight is one for survival and a place beside everyone else, not one that’s rooted in the very rules of the foundation that stripped them of their freedoms in the first place.

But in many remote areas of Africa, you will be amazed by the thousands of points of light that fill the sky without interference from city lights or smog. As stars have influenced the daily activities of some African tribes for generations, astronomy is a major part of a safari.
