TCU 2020/2021 Undergraduate Admission Guide Book for Ordinary Diploma/Equivalent Applicants
The Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) through its mandate as spelt out in Section (12) (2) (a) (b) (c) of the Universities Act Cap 346 of the laws of Tanzania, read together with Regulation 31 (2) (3) (4), coordinates the admission of students into Higher Learning Institutions (HLI) in Tanzania. As it was in the previous academic years, in the current Admission Cycle applications will be submitted and handled by respective institutions.
Thus, all applicants are required to send applications directly to individual Institutions. Higher Learning Institutions (HLIs) will directly receive and process applications, select and admit students into their institutions through their Senates/Boards. There after, HLIs will announce the admitted students prior to the submission to TCU for validation.
In order to facilitate the admission process, TCU has prepared the Undergraduate Admission Guidebook for 2019/2020 Academic Year as a tool to guide TCU, HLIs and the Applicants on admission procedure as well as to control quality of students admitted into HLIs.
The book entails information on undergraduate programmes approved to admit students in 2019/2020 admission cycle. In each HLI, minimum entry requirements, institutional admission capacities, and duration of each programme are indicated. An applicant is strongly advised to carefully read and understand the guidelines and programme admission requirements before lodging his/her application to the respective institutions.
