Read time: 1 min

By Wednesday 5 February the University of Fort Hare had registered more than half of its 2020 student population.

 So far, 8500 students of the 15 000 expected students have been registered, with a substantial number of them already allocated residences.  Of the registered students, 7800 are undergraduates and the rest are postgraduates.

The registration process started on the East London campus on 20 January and moved to the Alice campus on 24 January. The process was however disrupted for the whole of last week due to the SAUS universities shutdown campaign.

 Dr Rose Masha, Deputy Registrar: Academic Affairs gave assurance that “registration teams would be working around the clock to catch-up and wrap-up the process”.

“We will be working on Saturday (8 February) as an extension of the current schedule. The entire team will be at their stations in Alice to register students,” she said.

Dr Masha was speaking from the Alice Sport Centre where scores of students were lined-up for registration.

From Monday next week the registration team will move to Bhisho campus.

Dr Masha encouraged all students to register online. “Online registration is open for all campuses,” she said.
