Registration protocols for MUT

Press release

(For immediate release)

Registration protocols for MUT

As the grade 12 results are released, kindly be informed that MUT is still in the process of selecting new students for the 2020 academic year. As usual, the University will continue its stance of not accepting walk-ins. Prospective students that applied last year for the limited places at the University will be informed via sms, and telephone, by the responsible authorities of the outcome of their request. Such students may also call to find out about their applications. Students that have received firm offers are requested to come only on the day on which the programme they applied for is registering.

A firm offer is an SMS communication from the University to an applicant assuring them of a place to study because they meet all the entry requirements. Applicants who have been given firm offers are also expected to accept firm offers and pay that R500 acceptance offer.  If they do not accept the firm offer within the stipulated period, the firm offer is given to next applicant.

Prospective students should note that they will forfeit their firm offers if they do not register on the set date, and also do not inform the head of the department that they won’t make the date. Departments are under pressure to take appropriate decisions as spaces are limited.

All the University programmes register from 13 – 24 January 2020.

Also, please be informed that NSFAS applications are closed. The University cannot assist prospective and returning students with any NSFAS-related issues. For more information, please visit
