(i) Satisfy the General Entrance Requirement of the University (unless granted exemption in accordance with regulations);
(ii) Satisfy the particular Entrance Requirements prescribed by the relevant school as being necessary for such a programme of study (unless granted exemption in accordance with Regulations); and

(ii) Passes at credit level in at least five subjects in the General Certificate of Education Ordinary Level Examinations.

(i) Qualifications other than those of the Zambian School Certificate (or Cambridge Overseas School Certificate) or the General
Certificate of Education may be accepted provided they are approved as equivalents by the University Senate.

this may include credits obtained at ‘O’ level).
(iii) A person holding a two-year Diploma of the University or of an institution awarding the diploma in associate relationship
with the University has an added advantage in as far as satisfying the General Entrance Requirements is concerned.
