Scores of students flock to Motheo TVET College in Bloemfontein to secure space and register for the 2019 academic year. This as hundreds of first-time students, accompanied by parents and guardians, queue in front of the main campus in the Central Business District (CBD) to receive confirmation as to whether or not they had been accepted to study at the institution.
One of the first year students who would like to register to study for Tourism told OFM News that he has been standing in a queue since the early hours of the morning. He says he hopes for the best in his pursuit to further his studies and is hopeful that he will be accepted at the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college.
Meanwhile, at the Central University of Technology walk-in students are still making their way to the institutions enquiring on studies to register for ahead of the scheduled registration dates, next week. Chairperson of the South African Students Congress (Sasco) at the Bloemfontein Campus, Nathasha Lethola, told OFM News that the CUT is at this stage taking walk-in applications in faculties where there is still space. She adds that they are anticipating all registrations to run smoothly.
