The Department of Basic Education released the much-anticipated matric results for the class of 2019 last week, with a record pass rate of 81.3%.


According to the university's registrar Kinta Burger at least 92 000 late applications are being processed by the institution.


"We also had the late enquiry system that was in place for five days for those that maybe didn't make it in terms of what they applied for or even those that wanted to change a programme and also those that didn't apply at all.


"Those hadn't applied were give the opportunity over those five days on our late enquiry system and like I said, we've received 92 000 enquires."


Burger also emphasized that no walk-ins would be allowed.


TUT: Registration kicks-off without a hitch, spaces still available

TUT has space for 14 700 new first year students. Thousands of prospective students pitched up at several of the institution's campuses on Monday to register or apply for admission. Spokesperson Willa de Ruyter has urged the students to rather use TUT's online application system.

She adds that despite an increase of 5.4% in tuition fees, the registration fee has not increased.


"Our first minimum payment that a student must pay to be able to resister, that hasn't gone up. The fist minimum payment is exactly the same last year, which is R3870."
