UJ closes late applications
Cape Town - The University of Johannesburg on Tuesday notified prospective students that no more late applications would be accepted.
University staff handed out pamphlets notifying at least 3 000 people still at the entrance that the application process had closed.
Earlier on Tuesday a woman was killed and 22 other people were injured in a stampede caused by thousands of prospective students queuing outside the university's Bunting Road campus in Auckland Park.
The woman was the mother of a potential student.
Meanwhile, Free State University in Bloemfontein said it has necessary contingency plans in place to deal with any problems during the registration of first-year students.
The university added, however, that because of limited resources not all the students will be admitted.
