Students with no registration holds (i.e. RISK, document hold, etc), but have outstanding fees, can provisionally capture their module choices online, this will be parked until they receive the necessary financial clearance. Registration will then go through.

Group 3:

First entry undergraduates.

Remote online registration will commence on Monday, 10 January 2022 for first entry undergraduates.

‘Walk-ins’ will not be accommodated, as the University has received in excess of 110 000 on-time applications for only 9 000 first entry intake places. ‘Change of mind’ by confirmed applicants will be dealt with online.

Late Applications:
We will be accepting late applications until 7 February 2022.
