Registrations by new and returning students for the 2016 academic year at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) have proceeded smoothly.

“By lunchtime today, Tuesday, January 12th, we had registered over 2 000 students, and are seeing the numbers grow every hour,” said UJ Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Strategic Services, Ms Mpho Letlape.

This comes after students took to Twitter on Monday complaining that the online system was not working well, derailing the registration process. The university is expecting almost 50 000 students who will be studying in 2016.

“We appeal to students who may find access a little slow at peak times to try again during off peak periods,” she emphasised.

Registration remains open until February 3rd . It can be accessed 24/7 online.
