The complete course registration procedure can be done online or at the College. If you need any assistance with the registration process, our friendly College Registrar will help you with this on the Campus.
Specialized and qualification courses require a more comprehensive registration process to capture the applicant’s details for study and certification purposes.
Each course’s entry requirements are visible on the relevant course information page.
It is recommended that students enrolling at SAUMA Academy have access to the following items for communication purposes:
A functional personal Email Address
A personal smartphone and number with the option to load WhatsApp
_____________MUSIC APTITUDE TEST_______________
Our qualification courses in Music Technology require a basic music aptitude test as an entry requirement. The aptitude test measures the ability to recognize pitch, rhythm, dynamics and musical memory.
The music aptitude test is completed as part of the registration process at our campus in Johannesburg should you have limited internet availability. We have a paper-based test available for remote students without internet access – enquire for more information in this regard.
PRE-REGISTRATION QUESTIONNAIRE / INTERVIEW
Our Specialized Courses may require existing industry experience and specific skills as entry requirements. To determine whether you qualify to apply for the course you can complete the pre-registration questionnaire, or request an interview via Skype or telephone at the campus.
PORTFOLIO OF WORK
Some courses may require the submission of a portfolio of creative work showcasing existing skills (drawing, 3D perception, composition) as entry requirement.
DOCUMENTS AND FORMS
As part of your registration we require certain documentation with your application. This may include student ID photos, copy of the student and payee’s ID or Passport document, proof of income, debit order form, signed student contract, etc.
We urge every new application to submit the required documents as specified for each course to finalize your registration. Incomplete registrations may lead to registration cancellation or that the student be place on a waiting list for the next course intake.
PROOF OF REGISTRATION
Once your registration application is finalized (you have completed your registration application, submitted all the required forms and made the required payments towards your course) you will receive a proof of registration from the Institution. We cannot issue a student with a proof of registration on any incomplete registration.
Course registration work on a strict first-come first-serve principle and we will not reserve any seats in a course without a finalized course registration. Should the course be filled at the time of your registration or your application be incomplete – you may be put on a waiting list for the next course intake.
Each course has specific entry requirements that need to be met before a student can have access to the registration of the particular course.
As a private Institution SAUMA Academy reserves the right of admission to its premises. All information received from any applicant and processed for educational purposes is kept private and confidential as set out in our private policy
__________COURSE PROGRESSION AND ARTICULATION___________
The progression from one academic year to the next academic year depends on the completion of core modules of a course. Articulation from a course presented by another accredited institution into one of SAUMA’s accredited courses is possible and depends on the content and level covered by the other institution. In such a case a prospect student may be required to present a portfolio of work as well as undergo some additional assessment.
After registration you will receive a list of prescribed material and textbooks, and where to acquire these resources. It is strongly advised that students get their own copy (new or used) of textbooks ASAP after registration to avoid delays before their first class starts.
Certain compulsory textbooks or manuals required as part of the course curriculum may be included in the course registration fee, and will be provided directly to students during the course.
