Students invited to use the online university placement system
Post-marital students seeking a placement in higher education institutions for this academic year should use the Application Information Clearinghouse (CACH) online system.
This is the call made by the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation, Dr Blade Nzimande, urging students to use the online application service.
Designed and presented by the Department of Higher Education and Training, CACH is an online application portal designed for grade 12 students seeking admission to post-school education and training.
In a statement, Nzimande explains that the CACH is particularly useful for applicants who have applied for admission to a university or college on time in 2020 and have fulfilled the entry requirements when their grade 12 results were released, but did not receive a place in their program of choice.
Additionally, CACH is useful for potential students who applied and qualified for entry based on their grade 11 results, but found that they did not qualify for entry when their grade 12 results have been published.
For the 2021 academic year, the CACH service opened on February 22 and will be available until the end of April.
“CACH also provides referrals to career development services, funding opportunities, and skills development opportunities, including craft programs and training,” says Nzimande. âInstitutions offering skills development or study opportunities will then select potential students from the CACH database and make direct contact with those selected. ”
