What is registration?

Registration is the process which takes place at the start of the academic year in which students receive academic advice from curriculum advisors, select their preferred courses, and enrol onto them. Registration is compulsory for all students (both new and returning); you must register in person (unless the faculty has communicated otherwise), and you are obliged to register before the end of the registration period.

When is registration?

For provisional dates for the Humanities undergraduate registration period, please see the 2024 Registration Schedule.

If you are new to UCT, you will be briefed about the registration process during Orientation. Please see details on the Humanities Orientation page.

What happens at registration?

During each registration slot, students will have the opportunity to:

  1. complete a curriculum planner,
  2. discuss their curriculum with an advisor, and
  3. complete their registration task and upload their course selections to PeopleSoft.

Students are advised to consult the 2024 Humanities Undergraduate Handbook when planning their curriculum.

Things to remember

  • If you attend in-person registration, remember to bring your ID/passport, UCT student card (if a returner) and a pen.
  • All returning International and SADC students must go to the IAPO office in Masingene Building, Middle Campus on the day before they are scheduled to register, for fee clearance and to present their study permits and health insurance details.
  • A late registration fee of R2000 will automatically be charged to the account of any student who is allowed to register after the last day of registration.
  • Please attend curriculum advice or submit your request in your designated timeslot.
