What is Pre-Registration?

Pre-registration is the process of double-checking that all international students have submitted all of their relevant documents to the Office for International Education, and that they are on record in their student files. Students must report to the venue indicated on their list of important dates and at the time indicated. They are required to bring original copies of all their documents.

Required Documents

  • Original school-leaving certificates and proof of birth date (original birth certificates), indicating compliance with Matriculation Exemption requirements.
  • Valid passport with a valid study permit.
  • Proof of payment of tuition fees in full and prescribed portion of Residence fees or proof of sponsorship.
  • Proof of medical insurance coverage.
  • IELTS or TOEFL results (applicable to non-English speaking degree students only).
  • Transcripts of academic records.

What is Registration?

Registration is the formal confirmation of the acceptance of an admitted applicant to a specific course of study at the university, after successful compliance with the minimum registration requirements.

What requirements must a student meet to be registered?

  • The specific Faculty requirements have to be met.
  • The registration form (blue) has to be signed by the student and the Faculty Officer.
  • All fees need to be paid before registration.
  • The Access Assessment must be completed before registration. Test results may be used for development or streaming purposes during registration.

What proof of registration does a student receive?

At registration after a student has been registered he/she will receive the following:

  • Proof of registration form where all modules and fees are indicated
  • A laminated student card
  • An individual time-table

What does a student need to do if he/she wants to change degrees or modules?

  • Form 11 must be completed. This form can be obtained from the Office for International Education.
  • The student must indicate if a module must be added or deleted and indicate why.
  • The form must be signed by the student and the relevant Faculty Officer.
  • If the change involves a change of Faculty the student must be aware that they may need to sit for the Access Assessment Battery, as part of their admissions requirements to the new Faculty e.g. if a student who was previously registered in the Arts Faculty wishes to change to a BCom degree (a degree in theEconomic and Building Sciences Faculty) the student will need to provide Mathematics results.
  • The Dean of the relevant Faculty then considers the student’s request together with all the information contained in his/her file and his/her test results, in making the admissions decision.

The results of this decision are then communicated to the admissions officer, who then contacts the student to inform him/her of the results.

Please Note: Registration takes place between the end of January and the beginning of February. There is also a registration session in July for students arriving mid-year.
