EXPERIENCED: International Officer, Bienfait Ngoy, is available to assist fellow international students with queries. 

International students who are still waiting for their study permits to be issued by the Department of Home Affairs will be allowed to register before the cut-off date.

Acting Registrar, Nikile Ntsababa, recently issued a memorandum to staff and students, advising that all international students that have applied for their study permits, not issued by the DHA during the registration period, should be allowed to register during the late registration period from 1 to 24 February 2012. Students, however, will have to provide a valid receipt from the DHA, indicating that they have applied for the study permit.
