The Postgraduate Certificate in Informatics (Information Systems Audit) programme is primarily designed to provide students
with deeper insight, intellectual and cognitive skills related to their professional field and area of employment and help them to
advance their career of choice. This programme will further expose students to advanced concepts, theories, tools, and methods
of Information Systems Audit. The overarching aim of this programme is to prepare students for a career in the Information
(IT) audit field and for certification as an information systems auditor or information security specialist. Students will be able to
take up a certification course in this field and may become members of professional/association bodies such as the Information
Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA). The Postgraduate Certificate in Informatics (Information Systems Audit) will not
lead to further academic study, but graduates would gain credit for relevant courses should they opt to register for the Bachelor
of Informatics Honours.
Applicants must have a three‐year Diploma or a Bachelor degree or an equivalent qualification on NQF Level 7 with an Information Systems emphasis from an accredited institution. Applicants should also have at least two years relevant work experience. Additional admission criteria may apply as set at the discretion of the Department.
