Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) is well on its way to meeting its target intake for first-year students. Today is the fifth day of registering new students and the numbers tell a good story. As of this morning (Friday, 18 February), MUT had registered more than 1812 new students. The University has 3516 places for new students, for all three of its faculties.
Xolani Kunene, Head of Academic Administration, said all the University systems are processing new students efficiently.
“We have not had disruptions and students are registering smoothly. Others are registering off-campus using online systems, while others preferred to come to campus where they are assisted with their registration,” said Kunene.
The Deputy Registrar: Administration, Zolisa Gqamane added that the total number of new and returning student enrolment for the 2022 academic year is projected to be 13 524.
Members of the South African Police Services have also been on campus to certify documents for the students to make the registration a seamless exercise and to eliminate the chances of students being robbed of their belongings while visiting centres to get their documents certified.
The registration of returning students is scheduled for 21 to 25 February 2022.
