UJ scraps late walk-in applications
The university’s decision was prompted by a stampede in January in which a mother died.
JOHANNESBURG – The University of Johannesburg (UJ) will no longer accept late walk-in applications.
The university’s decision was prompted by a stampede in January, during which the mother of a prospective student was trampled to death.
UJ Vice Chancellor Ihron Rensburg urged future applicants to apply online or to make use of the university’s mobile internet site.
"We’re confident that the use of electronic media or electronic communications in this instance is going to be helpful to the university, but also to late applicants."
UJ was one of the few universities that took last-minute applications after the January release of matric results.
