Optional eighth paper

Health Sciences First Year (HSFY) students can enrol in an optional eighth paper in second semester, selected from the following approved list.

The aim of the eighth paper option is to foster critical thinking and analysis, by giving students the opportunity to explore areas outside of the seven HSFY papers.

In this instance, the results in the best seven papers will be counted for the purposes of admission to the professional programmes, provided that the compulsory seven papers are passed at or above the required minimum standards.

After you have received your first semester results you are able to add your 8th optional paper on the Programmes and Papers page in eVision.

More information on how to add an 8th optional paper (including deadlines).
