The University of Limpopo (UL) has on Monday, 7 January 2019 began processing thousands of first -entering students’ applications for admission to study in the 2019 academic year.
This is meant to finalise application status according to the learners’ matric results. Acting University Registrar, Prof Kwena Masha, says that the university is working hard to assist students who have applied during the application window (March – September) in 2018.
Masha says that the long queues at the university are mostly formed by walk-in students who are trying to submit late applications, as those who have applied on time will receive feedback without standing in lines to submit matric results as the university will access their results from the Department of Education.
“Starting from Wednesday, 9 January, applicants will receive SMSes informing them about the outcome of their applications,” Masha confirms.
The university has received over 55 000 direct applications and 10 000 from the central application system for 2019 academic year and can only admit 4 500 first -entering students.
“Currently we are only assisting late applicants who achieved level 4 and above in Mathematics and are interested in the sciences and accounting as in those programmes we normally do not meet the quotas,” he states, adding that general, late applications will start on 17 January provided there is admission space available.
Registration for first- year students will commence on 14 – 17 January 2019 and registration for all students living with disabilities will be on 10 January 2019.
