Professor Ramaranka Mogotlane, the university's head of academic affairs, announced: "Registration took place on February 14, and this week we have started with orientation until the official academic opening of the university on Wednesday."

The university, which was officially opened in October last year, currently offers three programmes: a bachelor degree in agriculture, a bachelor degree in education (foundation phase) and a national diploma in hospitality.

This is Mpumalanga's first university - and also the first to be built by the democratically elected government. Another is being completed in the Northern Cape. Named the Sol Plaatje University, its intake will be 5 000 students.
