Together We Pass’s helpful tips from Nita Ramroop and Nerraine September on University of South Africa registration:

  1. Register early

If you register in January, you lose five weeks of study time! Remember how stressful this term was and try to work consistently throughout this term. You can then register online, at a regional office or by post/fax. It’s advisable to register online as that is the fastest and easiest. Register online.

  1. Check any outstanding work

If you are already a University of South Africa student, check the modules you still have to complete. University of South Africa often change their University of South Africa course codes and if you submit an assignment under an old course code, it will be listed as outstanding.

  1. Check the textbooks that are required for each subject

Some textbooks are updated every year and the one you have may be out of date. Other textbooks, you may be able to use for a couple of years in a row. Best to check before you register (and before you buy or sell any study notes). Check which textbooks have been prescribed for your module.

  1. Be wise when choosing your modules

Many students get demotivated or give up if they start with a module they aren’t interested in or one that is too hard. Start with a module you think you’ll enjoy and it will encourage you to keep going. When registering for your modules, make sure that you use the module code and not the module name.

  • Don’t wait for your marks to be released as they are always late! Choose modules that don’t have prerequisites or that have prerequisites that you already fulfil.
  • Remember you can register some modules now and others (if you are waiting for marks) later.
  • You can confirm your qualification, choose your modules and calculate your fees.
    1. Look at the exam dates


Check the above three points again and see which exams aren’t too close together. It’s a tough process, but try plan at least one day between each paper to perform your best.

    1. Look at your resources


Before you register, ensure you have internet access and good computer knowledge as these are crucial to you having a worthwhile academic experience.

    1. Manage your payment


When you’re on the University of South Africa site, choose the online registration option. A new tab will pop up with instructions. Follow the instructions and then pay directly after registration. When you’ve paid your required amount, print out your proof of payments and fax it through to University of South Africa’s registration department.
