Absolutely no walk-in applications‚ says UJ
While the University of Johannesburg (UJ) prepares to take on 10,500 new students‚ it issued a statement reiterating that it “does not‚ under any circumstances‚ accept on-campus late applications”.
“The university takes this opportunity to remind all who have applied to and are interested in studying at UJ that the application‚ acceptance and registration process is handled entirely online‚” a statement said on Tuesday.
The release comes ahead of the release of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations results on Wednesday and UJ said it “congratulates all of South Africa’s matriculants who have been successful in completing their final school exams”.
“For UJ‚ every new student is a welcome addition to our ever growing community of South Africans who are uplifted‚ inspired and empowered by a programme of academic study and a concrete qualification‚” said vice-chancellor and principal Professor Ihron Rensburg.
Those new students will learn if they have a place among the 50000-strong body via SMS by January 8.
Applicants who are not notified “they must visit the UJ website (www.uj.ac.za) to verify their application status‚ or call the UJ Call Centre (011 559 4555) for more information”.
Rensburg said: “The university remains committed to its vital mission to empower our people‚ their families‚ and the nation via the development and transfer of knowledge‚ insights and capabilities.”
