UKZN registration will be entirely online this year.

The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) has issued a reminder to members of the public, parents and prospective students that this year’s registration is strictly online.

The university’s corporate relations executive director, Normah Zondo said the institution has noted with great concern messages being circulated on social media encouraging students and parents to flock to one of their campuses from Monday.

“We wish to warn against these messages, which are misleading and irresponsible, as the university’s position is clear on this matter. We urge students to abide by the university’s decision and register online,” said Zondo. She said nobody will be allowed into any of the campuses for registration.

“As communicated earlier, there are no registration services or registration assistance available on any of our campuses.

“All registration should take place from remote locations as this is meant to mitigate against any health risks to our staff and students.”

Zondo said all registration information is on the UKZN website and chatbot is available to assist. 

“The University will continue with online teaching and learning until further notice. Only practical and clinical training will be face to face.”
