The IMM GSM is a provider of distance education. There is no requirement for students to be within South Africa's borders to write examinations.

Please note:

Admission of non-South African resident students is subject to the conditions set out in the Immigration Act 13 of 2002. Successful application by a non-South African resident application depends on the following:

  • Confirmation of academic acceptance
  • Obtaining the necessary statutory documentation and state approval
  • All non-South African resident prospective students are required to submit proof of English language proficiency, which may consist of:
    • The results of the internationally-recognised IELTS test, or
    • English passed at school-leaving level (e.g. O-level or HIGCSE)

All copies of documents should be certified by a registered practitioner and should have an original signature.

No faxed or e-mailed application forms will be accepted.

  1. Dates for examination registration

Registration forms must be returned to the IMM GSM by 01 March for 1st semester registrations and 01 August for 2nd semester registrations or the next business day of any these dates fall on a Sunday.

This form must be completed, even if you have already paid your examination fees or had your fees transferred from the last examination session. We need to know what modules and where you will be writing your examinations.
