Tshwane's higher education institutions have improved their skills to guarantee that the registration procedure for new students runs smoothly.
In spite of the raging controversy about forced vaccines in higher education, some institutions have declared their plans to admit first-time students and the dates on which they would do so, all while following the strict Covid-19 guidelines.
There will be a registration period for first-time students at the Tshwane University of Technology from January 31 to February 25.
Phaphama Tshisikhawe, a university official, announced that the institution has improved its online systems, including the pre-selection of all required first-year courses and the confirmation of all newly registered first-year students.
Tshisikhawe noted that acceptance letters with registration requirements were also being sent out to students so that they could register more quickly.
Tshisikhawe said the institution will not accept walk-in students because of the danger of illness that comes with large crowds and lines.
In order to help students who were having trouble enrolling online, the university will make use of several of its labs.
A limited number of counter services are offered for students who are unable to register online. She went on to say that "Covid-19 intensifies the execution of what has always been the plan toward a digitally advanced institution."
Covid-19 levels will be assessed to evaluate whether or not mask-to-mask courses are possible, Tshisikhawe added.
An official at the University of South Africa (Unisa) confirmed that the 2022 academic year would include two semesters.
Registration for the first semester began on January 4 and would end on January 24.
The second semester modules can also be registered at this time if there are no prerequisites for the modules, according to Dlamini.
According to him, the second-semester registration session will begin on June 20 and end on July 18.
There were no exceptions to this rule, according to him.
A decision on whether or not to extend a registration deadline would be made by the appropriate authorities in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
University of Pretoria official Rikus Delport says the postgraduate registration session began on January 3.
For incoming students, Delport announced that registration will begin on January 25, with welcome day taking place on February 12 and orientation taking place from February 14 to 18.
According to him, the registration process for seniors will begin on the first of February.
On February 21, classes would begin.
