UJ welcomes new 2017 students and emphasises online registration procedures

The University of Johannesburg (UJ) congratulates all matriculants who have been successful in completing their final school examinations and we look forward to welcoming all who have been accepted for a programme of study at the University.

Matric (Grade 12) results still represent an important gateway to our collective and individual futures. An acceptance for further studies, whether at a university such as UJ or a technical and vocational education and training college, represents a significant milestone on the road to social mobility and is the lever to prosperous individuals, families, communities and nation.

“For UJ, every new student is a welcome addition to our ever growing community of South Africans who are uplifted, inspired and empowered by a programme of academic study and a concrete qualification,” said UJ’s Registrar, Prof Kinta Burger. “We look forward to our 2017 intake as the latest of a group of inquiring young minds, eager to learn and to empower themselves, their communities and their nation with meaningful and transformative knowledge, insight and capabilities.”
