In the planning area, enrolment planning is seminal, as it must be aligned with national imperatives and priorities, and it forms the basis for the determination of the university’s teaching input subsidy. A six-year enrolment plan from 2020-2025 was agreed with the Department of Higher Education and Training at the end of 2018, and 2020 was thus the first year of the current cycle. In 2020, as in every year, an internal enrolment plan for the following year, i.e. 2021, had been developed by DIPEM in consultation with the faculties, to take into account changed contextual realities and faculty planning at programme level. In 2021, DIPEM monitored the implementation of the 2021 enrolment plan with constant data analyses and advice.
