Students at one of the registration stations

Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) opened the registration of returning students on Thursday, 24 February and 20% of this cohort was registered in less than a few hours of the system being opened.

As of the morning of Friday, 25 February, MUT registered 5,060 students moving the university closer to the halfway mark on its target number of students to be registered in the 2022 academic year. The Faculties of Engineering and Management Sciences are leading the pack with 2,351 and 2,047 respectively. The Faculty of Natural Sciences is sitting at 662 students.

By Wednesday, 23 February, the University had cleared over 7,000 NSFAS funded students laying the foundation for students to register online.

Andrew Kubone, Manager: Financial Aid Office, said that the list from NSFAS contained all the names of students that have qualified for funding by the national body. He said that the list was the guarantee that the University needed in as far as knowing that the fees of students in question would be paid. Kubone also acknowledged that NSFAS sends updated lists when new students have been approved for funding.

MUT is also in the process of clearing about 600 returning students. These students will be cleared by end of Saturday, 26 February, and will be able to register online the following day. More students are expected to take up their places by end of the weekend.
