“We will be ready, come Monday.” This is how the Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) Deputy Registrar for Academic Affairs, Zolisa Gqamane, felt after a registration planning meeting that took place on 25 January 2023 in anticipation of the registration of the first-time entering students starting on 30 January 2023.

Gqamane and all other divisions that deal with registration at the University agreed that the University was ready for first-year students. Financial Aid Office Manager, Andrew Kubone, said that by Monday morning they would be ready to register at least 811 first-time enrolling students who are NSFAS-funded. These new students will register online on Monday as they would have been cleared in the system. Kubone said that was very pleasing news.

“This figure is very close to what we have expected on the first day of registration for first-time entering students,” said Kubone.

During the meeting, Xolani Kunene, Head of Administration, rolled out a list with online enrolment and registration figures his division has. The departmental selectors, who were part of the meeting, said they were on top of things; they were dealing with problems as and when they arose.

Selectors from various departments detailed the number of offers they had issued to students to meet their enrolment target.

The Head of Protection Services, Jackson Rammala, said they would be ready for the registration and would be on standby to ensure that none of the students who did not apply to the university enter the campuses.

Rammala cautioned against scams targeting desperate matriculants by promising them a place at MUT for a fee.
