Online registration allows us to uphold the current lockdown regulations and to keep our students and staff safe. Therefore:

– NO walk-in applicants will be allowed on our campuses because the university has reached its admissions capacity for.

Information about the academic programme +

Due to the national lockdown regulations and the capacity of the university’s infrastructure to adhere to physical distancing protocols, the institution is following a minimalistic approach by limiting the number of students who will be returning to the campuses.

During the first semester, the university will continue with an online/blended learning and teaching approach for first-year and senior undergraduate students. This means that some classes will be online, some in contact or face-to-face mode, and others a combination of contact and online.

In general, ALL students in the faculties of Health Sciences and Natural and Agricultural Sciences will return to the campuses (including first-year students), with the understanding that travelling across provincial borders will continue. In some other faculties, only students in identified modules will return to the campuses. Students are encouraged to plan accordingly in terms of accommodation.

If you are required to return to the campuses during the semester, you will be contacted by the faculty and provided with a campus access permit. You will be expected to undergo a screening process every time you enter the campuses. Information on the screening process will be provided upon receipt of your campus access permit.

Only students in possession of a valid campus access permit will be allowed to enter the campuses.

If you have NOT been contacted to return, you will be supported through remote multimodal teaching, learning, academic advising, and assessment until you are informed by your faculty that you can return to campus.
