This week, Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) started the registration of first-year students for the new academic year. Prospective students have approached the decision with enthusiasm and have started booking their places at the university.

Zolisa Gqamane, Deputy Registrar: Academics Affairs, said the number of students who are registering at the University are increasing by the day despite slow pace of first-year registration across the country.

To ensure that no student is left behind, MUT has also decided to open its gate for prospective students who are unable to register from their respective homes to come and register on campus. So far, over 1500 first-year students and counting have registered.

Zolisa explained that the University was still not opened to walk-ins but the institution was giving students who applied and were accepted an opportunity to register on campus instead of doing it remotely.

Prospective students that have been offered places to study at MUT are encouraged to register with the university.
