There was an air of excitement and anticipation, at The Vaal University of Technology, Vanderbijlpark Campus as registrations for 2017 commenced on 9 January. A number of students queued outside the campus looking to secure a place in their prospective fields of study, with some even taking a shot at submitting their late applications.
Since launching the self-help registration process last year, 2017 registration process was made easy for all students, almost everything they needed to do was done under one roof, limiting a lot of glitches. The staff from the Registrars Office assisting the students said this year’s registration process has improved compared to the previous years, it is going smoothly. Amongst the various stations available for students to access – was the Foundation Courses Stall, allowing the students who did not qualify, an opportunity to be assisted in furthering their studies. Steven Branford from the UPP (University Preparations Program) Department said they are very happy to assist all the students who don’t qualify for their prospective fields of study and they are ready to assist and prepare them this year for their prospective courses. Foundation courses are available for all Faculties.
Ivanilda Cambala from Angola who registered for her first year in Biomedical Technology said she is happy to be done with the registration process. She is looking forward to a great 3 years and already has cousins enrolled at VUT, she foresees great things and happy to have chosen VUT as her University of study.
