All undergraduate students can register from 17 January 2024 to 9 February 2024.

Registration takes place online and students can undertake any of the two methods below for self-registration:

  • Programme enrolment entails an approved curriculum and rules configured in the system that allow students to register for a set number of fixed courses; If students deviate from the rules of the curriculum or apply for a concession, this request will be routed in the first instance to the respective academic advisor who will need to approve and route back to the student who is then able to conclude enrolment for the year. 
  • Blank shopping cart where students will be able to select courses that will then be routed to an academic advisor for approval.

Academic advisors are academic conveners/persons who will receive the student’s registration submissions for approval. NB: this will only apply to students who enrol for courses outside their fixed curriculum; or to students who have a tailored academic plan and are meant to take specific courses. Students with tailored academic plans - their service requests will be routed to the relevant academic advisor for consideration and approval.
