This degree is offered at the East London campus on a full-time basis only at undergraduate level.

Students who have been previously registered for IS modules under the B.Com (IS) curriculum prior to 2017 or any IS module under another degree must ensure that they register for the correct modules each year.  Students should seek the assistance of the Department of Information Systems’ HOD/Undergraduate Coordinator if they are unsure of the modules applicable to their course.
