The College Handbook

All the Colleges at UKZN have a Handbook that is revised and updated every year. The College Handbook includes the vision and mission statement of each College, the rules of the College and a full list of academic staff.

The Handbooks are important documents that have all the academic information you need to know from admission to graduation. It includes all the General Rules of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, and important UKZN polices such as the Transformation Charter, the Academic Monitoring and Support policy, the Exclusion Policy, and the Sessional Dates. The Handbook publishes the sessional dates for each academic year.

Each College updates and produces its own Handbook every year. In addition to general UKZN information, the Handbooks contain detailed information relating to your College and the degree for which you are registered. This information includes degree structure and detailed module information.

We are here to help you.
