DUT Registration Progress for 2018

reg story

The registration of first-year students from the various faculties at the Durban University of Technology (DUT) is on track. To date, 96% of first-year students from the Faculties of Accounting and Informatics, Applied Sciences, Arts and Design, Engineering and The Built Environment, Health Sciences and Management Sciences have already registered quickly and efficiently.

However, there are spaces still available for first-year students in the following programmes: Internal Auditing, Electronic Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Geomatics and in Construction.

Dr Thiru Pillay-Deputy Registrar at DUT, said: “It has been noted that several returning students at the Durban University of Technology (DUT) have not registered yet as they are resolving financial issues and academic appeals. These students have until 29 March 2018 to register. However, they will need to obtain permission from their Head of Department and sign an agreement form in order to qualify for this concession. They are also required to attend lectures while their issues are being resolved.

Returning students who do not register by this date, will not be permitted to continue attending lectures and will not be allowed to register in 2018.”

Assistant Registrar at Student Administrations, Mr Vikesh Singh, encourages students to also make use of the off-campus facilities such as the cashless fee campaign as advertised on the DUT website and the online registration system.
