First year freebies

EXCITED: First year PR students received more than just information during their orientation week.

WHEN a group of excited first year Public Relations students were asked what they were most looking forward to in their studies they all shouted “Freebies”.

CLASS BEGINS: First-year Clothing and Textile Technology students are looking forward to the 2012 academic year.

After a jam-packed week of exciting Orientation activities, thousands of first-year students are expected to report for class this week.

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.

Director: International Affairs, Merle Hodges, whose directorate is responsible for assisting staff in applying to take part in the programme.
