LIMITED UNIVERSITY SPACE SHUTS OUT SCORES OF STUDENTS
Thousands of university applicants have been turned away as universities across the country struggle to accommodate growing numbers of young people wanting to study.
At least seven major universities in the country had received a combined total of more than 300 000 first year applications for placements next year, but fewer than 50 000 were accepted for the new academic year.
Admissions had reportedly become competitive and universities were able only to admit a limited number of students.
The number of spaces available was reportedly in line with the enrolment plan approved by the Department of Higher Education and Training.
More than 90 000 first-year applications had been received by the University of Johannesburg, with only 10 500 accepted.
The University of Western Cape received 50 000 applications and had taken a mere 4 500, while Wits University accepted 6 300 students from more than 65 000 applicants.
Rhodes University took in 1 800 from 7 830 applicants while the University of Cape Town accepted 4 200 from more than 19 000 applicants.
Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University had 6 056 students from more than 50 000 applications.
The application period for all these institutions had ended and those whose applications were unsuccessful were urged to find alternative institutions to study.
