The Central Applications Clearing House (CACH) online application service for matriculants, who struggled to secure a place at the educational institution of their choice, will open from 5 January - 28 February 2018.

CACH services are particularly useful for applicants who applied for admission to a university or college in time, but have not been offered a place or their programme of choice.

It can also be useful for prospective students who achieved better than expected results, and now wish to access a different course or university or Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college.
Students who missed the application window period for one reason or the other can also use CACH services.

CACH was established in 2013 in response to the large number of applicants seeking entry to the Post School Education and Training (PSET) sector in January, when most universities have closed their application process.

It is provided by the Department of Higher Education and Training as a service that is free to both applicants and institutions.
Now in its fifth year, CACH has attracted 18 329 applicants.

A survey taken on 10 087 applicants in March 2016 revealed that 33% (3 328) of students had found a place in PSET or employment since contacting CACH. A survey taken of 11 770 applicants in March 2017 revealed that 37.3% (4 390) of students had found a place in PSET, or employment since contacting CACH.

This reflects an increase of 1 062 learners finding a place in the PSET sector. The increase is an indication of the positive impact of CACH.

Registration can be done on CACH’s website: http://cach.dhet.gov.za. Alternatively, prospective students can call the toll-free call centre number on 0860 35 66 35 from 8am to 8pm.
CACH is also contactable via standard SMS (name and ID) to 49200 or by email: [email protected].
