  1. Dear Sir/ Madam

    My name is Sihle Lukhele a post-graduate in BSc (Hons) Human Physilogy at the University Of Pretoria. I would like to further my studies in MSc Clinical Epidemiology and I am very excited and encouraged to study at Stellenbosch University in 2014. I would like to ask in what form should the Proof Of Computer Literacy be? Are there certificates required or would the academic record be proof enough?

    Thank you for your time.

    Kind Regards.

    Sihle Lukhele.
