Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University’s (NMMU) is wrapping up its first week of academic activity following the smooth start of lectures on Monday, 6 February.

The University’s six campuses have been hives of activity as students get their academics underway, write their re-examinations and/or continue with registration.

Exams

The February re-examinations period got off to an incident-free start yesterday, 9 February, with students writing exams at various venues across the University. The re-examinations period will end next Friday, 17 February.

Registration

Thousands of students have successfully registered for their studies and have commenced lectures, with more registering as they get the financial and academic clearance to do so. Students have until March 10 to register and may do so online via the link http://www.nmmu.ac.za/Students/Registration.

Students can also report to the following venues for online registration:

George Campus: Mopani Building

North Campus: EBEIT Lab

Missionvale Campus: Building 519, Room 0009

Second Avenue Campus: Absa Lab

South Campus: Aberdare lab

New timetable

The perennial challenge of overcrowded lecture spaces was proactively countered with the introduction of a new lecture timetable. Shuttle times have been adjusted to fit into the new framework.

Finance

Following various concessions made by the National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) in consultation with student leaders, more students have been given the go-ahead to proceed with registration. Students were also urged to sign their loan agreement contracts with NSFAS, with a significant number of students having heeded that call this week.

If students still encounter difficulties with regards to financial aid matters, they can consult the Financial Aid offices.
