Universities SA ask matriculants to refrain from walk in registrations

Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has made a call on Twitter for matriculates who previously could not afford studying at universities to report to the institutions and apply.

Universities SA have asked that they refrain from doing this to prevent chaos. Ahmed Bawa, CEO Universities SA says that there is a facility called Central Application Clearing House (CACH) to assist students who did not apply to universities prior to receiving their results.

We thought that they safest way of dealing with the students who have not applied to go to university yet, is for them to apply through the CACH system.

Ahmed Bawa, CEO Universities SA

They need to submit their details on the CACH system. The department will then, with the university and the TVT colleges place students, depending on their matric pass and whether they qualify for financial aid.

Bawa says the key challenge with students pitching up in large numbers to universities to apply, is the risk of injury.
