In view of the current Covid-19 public health emergency — and in line with government mandates — the University has put in place measures to ensure that the 2021 registration processes continue in a manner that mitigates the health and safety risks for our staff, students, and members of our local communities.
Registration has been structured to cater for three (3) distinct cohorts of students, in a staggered return approach.
Returning Research Masters and Doctoral students.
Remote online registration will commence on 18 January 2021 and specific details are included in Communiqué 2 from the Office of the Registrar, dated 22 December 2020.
First entry Research Masters and Doctoral candidates can register throughout the year.
All other returning students including all undergraduates, Honours (Hons), Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) and Coursework Masters (CWM) students, and new (first entry) honours, postgraduate diploma and coursework masters students offered a study place.
Remote online registration will commence on Monday, 8 February 2021, after the release of Semester 2: 2020 results on Friday, 5 February 2021.
Honours, Postgraduate Diploma and Coursework Masters students, please see the Communiqué from the Office of the Registrar dated 8 December 2020 for further details.
First entry undergraduates.
After the release of the Matric results on Tuesday, 23 February 2021 as proposed by the Department of Basic Education, the University will immediately commence with making firm offers.
Remote online registration will commence on Monday, 8 March 2021 for first entry undergraduates.
Late applications and ‘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.
All students with negative term decisions such as Risk1, Risk2, PROB or FPRR are required to attend an LEC® assessment and a group or individual feedback session with the Student Support Services (SSS) section.
If you previously did the LEC® assessment during the 2nd semester 2020, then you only need to attend an individual progress session with a student counsellor. If you did the LEC before September 2020, you will need to do the LEC® assessment and attend a group or individual feedback session.
