UJ 2017 student registrations steam ahead, reaching major milestone

Date: Jan 18, 2017 | Media Release, News

Registrations by new and returning students for the 2017 academic year at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) are steaming ahead and have achieved a significant milestone, with over 25% of all students having completed the necessary formalities in the ten days since the process started.
“The numbers are a very clear indication that the University’s community wants the academic year to get underway, on time, and without disruptions. The numbers also confirm that the online-only registration system is working smoothly, and has been embraced by UJ’s students,” said Prof Kinta Burger, the Registrar at UJ.
“By early morning today (Wednesday, 18 January 2017), we had registered over 13 000, which is close to one quarter of our entire student body and in line with the pace of registration in previous years,” she said.
UJ’s online registration system and chat facility, plus the call centre, dealing with personal enquiries and giving guidance to students, are all contributing to make the 2017 registration process as effortless and seamless as possible. The call centre handled more than 85 000 calls, and the UJ Mobisite dealt with 89 818 queries and closed on Friday, 13 January 2017.
Registration can be accessed 24/7 online. Anyone needing assistance is also welcome to call the UJ Call Centre on 011 559 4555.
