In order to register students must be in possession of an Acceptance Letter, the modules they would like to register for (refer to Curriculum grid or yearbook).
Once Registration is open, you can register via Returning Students logging into the Student Portal.
To expedite the process please ensure that you include the Proof of payment of the Initial payment fee (R5000).
Your form will go through the following process:
- Capturing the information on our student portal
- Finance check
- Module check
- Final check and issuing of proof of registration
- Thereafter the modules will be captured on Funda
Students are responsible for ensuring that they select the correct modules and the Institution will not be held responsible for incorrect choices of the student.
Amendments can only be made during the amendments period (the first two weeks of the Semester), so please ensure that when you register you select the correct modules.
Part-time need to register for 60 – 80 credits per year, and full-time for approximately 120 to 130 credits.
Your registration will be processed, and you will receive Proof of Registration. Please check the proof of registration to ensure that you have registered for the correct modules. Once your modules are available on Funda, please check that the modules correspond with the Proof of Registration received.
To help you plan your studies, be aware that each credit takes 10 hours of work. So if a module is worth 12 credits, it will take 120 hours to complete, including lectures, readings, research, assignments, etc. If you are not working and are dedicating your time to your studies, a full load for a year is 120 to 130 credits. If you are working full-time, you might struggle to take more than 60 to 70 credits in a year.
Please check our website for the programme you are taking so that you can see all the modules the programme comprises.
For more details, see the Yearbook on the website under the drop down “Student Information”.
