The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) admission standards for Courses and Modules are based on:

Using the latest technology, the TOEFL iBT test is an Internet-Based Test (iBT) that measures a candidate’s ability to combine listening, reading, speaking and writing skills, making it the most comprehensive English-language proficiency test.

IELTS Examiners are fully qualified and follow the IELTS standardized testing around the world. IELTS has a quality-controlled system of recruitment, training, benchmarking, certification and monitoring. IELTS markers are regularly monitored and tested every two years to retain their certification.

The free IELTS Test Report Form Verification Service enables universities and employers to authenticate test report forms and safeguards against fraudulent report forms
EIT students, with English as a second language, wanting to articulate into the Masters program must achieve a score of at least 6.50.
When a student requests recognition for prior learning (RPL), in order to receive an exemption from one or more of the Modules required in a Course, the student is required to make a formal written request to the Dean.
Credit can be provided for up to a maximum of 25% of the course.
As required by our various accrediting bodies, the exemption process is rigorous and costly. The following fees are charged to the student when an application for RPL is made:
|Country||Currency||Admin Fee||Inc/Excl Tax|
|Australia||AUD$||200||Inclusive of GST|
|Canada||C$||190||Exclusive of GST or HST|
|New Zealand||NZ$||246||Exclusive of GST|
|South Africa||ZAR||1625||Inclusive of VAT|
|United Kingdom||£||97||Exclusive of VAT|
|United States||US$||190||n/a (inclusive)|
|Africa||ZAR||1425||Exclusive of VAT|
|Rest of World - first world||US$||190||n/a (inclusive)|
|Rest of World - third world||US$||190||n/a (inclusive)|
The exemption process takes between two to four weeks so the registration with an application for RPL must be made with adequate time available to assess the RPL submissions prior to the commencement of the course.
In the first instance the onus is on the prospective student to present a case for exemption. A detailed description of prior learning is to be provided, accompanied by a statement of explanation/justification, drawing from the student’s:

An appeal to the EIT Academic Board may be made when option 4 is deemed appropriate.
