• As in previous years, the university only accepts walk-ins in the Science and Agriculture as well as Management and Commerce Faculties. The number of applicants from the Science and Mathematics stream is usually below the faculties’ quota.

• The walk-in application process will be closely monitored in order to comply with Covid-19 restrictions.

• A communique inviting walk-in applications for Management and Commerce has already been issued.

• Walk-in application forms will be downloadable from the university website. Applicants may complete the form and email it to the relevant faculty.

• Once approved, faculties will alert the successful students and invite them to come in and register


In line with Covid-19 regulations, the university has put the following measures in place:

Screening: All persons will be screened for Covid, this includes temperature check and filling out a Covid-19 compliance form.

Social Distancing:  Only a limited number of students and staff will be allowed into registration venues at a time and will be seated in marked areas.

The process will be heavily reliant on technology with limited human contact.

Sanitization: Venues, equipment (after each use) and hands will be sanitized regularly.

Masks: These must be worn at all times, except for when you take a picture for your student card.


In a bid to ensure a pleasant registration process for ALL our students, the university has created a 2022 Registration Guide: guide-2022.pdf (ufh.ac.za)  and instituted registration designated emails for the following offices and faculties:
