How To Apply For diploma and certificate colleges in Tanzania for 2022/2023 academic year

So, you’ve made the decision to study in TZ. This wasn’t difficult for you to decide, but now you’re at the hard part – how do you apply to attend a College in TZ? What do you need to do in order to make sure that you can go exactly where you want to go?

Here are 4 steps to help you apply for Diploma and Certificate colleges in Tanzania

Choose a college and a study program

The first thing you need to do is define your target: what do you want to study and where do you want to study. Fortunately, there are countless options available to you as the TZ currently counts around 500 recognized techical diploma and certificate education providers whereas the variety of available study courses is larger than that.

To choose your tz college, make a list of all universities colleges that offer diploma or certificate courses in your professional field and review their course structure and modules.

From there you can filter out a shorter list of colleges that would match your desire. It is not necessary to limit yourself in only one university, however, it would be much better than dispersing your attention in more than one option. To carry on this research, you need to start early enough at least one month before application deadlines.

Meet the Application Requirements

After you have decided on what TZ college and program you want to study, you must now see what are the requirements to apply for a place at that college. To do this, you must visit NACTE or institution website and check their application requirements section.

Knowing that NACTE college application requirements change largely between courses it is highly recommended you do multiple checks and take notes if needed. Also, you must pay attention to the details because at this point of your application everything counts even the least important document.

Timing is also important at this stage due to the fact that the completion of the required documents can take time and there may be unexpected delays until they’re issued to you

Consequently, you may lose the upcoming deadline and even worse, you can submit an application, but getting rejected for missing documents. Start to prepare well in time, at least three months before the university open calls for available places.


Now it’s time to submit your application. Before doing that, give a final look of your application paperwork to see if there might be something accidentally missing. Once you’ve done it, you’re ready to apply for a place at the chosen college in TZ.

Applications are most of the time carried online through the NACTE online application platform. All you need to do is to create a personal account in NACTE and then proceed with course selection and application’s submission. Note that there are some Institutions which run their own online application platform and require you to apply through it or jointly with NACTE.

Wait for the Admission Letter

As soon as your university/college receives your application they will send you an email to confirm it. There’s not a regular period of time it takes the admission committee to go through your application and respond to you. Due to heavily applications load TZ universities face, it takes time to process your request.

Overall, this process lasts for several weeks and it depends on how many applications the university has collected during that application fall. The good news is you can track the processing of your online application through NACTE Or Institution”s Online application portal at any time you want.
