Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) Late Application Information

Wanting to apply last minute? Or make some 11th-hour changes? Here’s what you should know…

Monday saw hundreds of students queuing up at both the University of Johannesburg and the Tshwane University of Technology, in a bid to seal their place on a higher learning course. Here, we’re looking at how a late application works with TUT.

There’s an 11th-hour scramble for places – as well as switches to other university courses – due to Jacob Zuma’s grand announcement that university education will be free from 2018 onwards. Students who previously couldn’t afford tertiary learning, or to undertake a certain course, now have a glimmer of hope.

It’s going to be a manic week for universities all across South Africa, but TUT is a university expecting one of the highest volumes of applicants. If you are thinking of taking on a degree, it’s certainly not too late…

Tshwane University of Technology late application:

Can we walk-in to apply?

The university has issued a strict ‘no walk-ins’ policy, and encourages students to apply online via www.tut.ac.za. There is no guarantee that you will be able to use campus IT facilities should you turn up on site.

Prospective students can also submit applications for study through the Central Application System (CAPS) on cach.dhet@gov.za​.

When is the deadline to apply for TUT?

With official registration beginning on Monday 15th January, students only have until Friday 12th January to apply for their chosen course. With just a few days before the deadline, this really is your last chance to sign up for the 2018 school year.

How many students can apply for TUT?

According to its official website, the Tshwane institution has taken just over 100,000 applications. However, they only have 15,500 first-year places available.
