Dear Students,

Welcome back to university. I trust that you all had a good vacation and used the time wisely to prepare for the examinations starting today.

Monday, 04 January 2016

Registration 2016

Registration for 2016 is scheduled for 15-29 February 2016 for all undergraduate students.

We, the vice-chancellors representing all 26 universities in South Africa, remain committed to continuing the widening of student access to university study and to the transformation of our universities consistent with the founding provisions of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa. A quality higher education system, we believe, is necessary for realising a democratic, non-racial, non-sexist and economically and socially inclusive society.
