Programme

Registration and Orientation (R&O) is divided into faculty based programmes and a curriculum control and registration process presented by your faculty on your specific campus of study, as well as a programme presented by Student Life on your specific campus. Please ensure that you follow your official campus based NWU R&O programme. Where this programme references curriculum control an registration, ensure that you use the FNAS R&O 2023 website for information. 

The Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences has opted to not present a faculty based programme for 2022 with the exception of online curriculum control and registration, the mandatory Mathematics Refresher Course and the mandatory Chemistry Sessions.

Selected groups students must attend the Mathematics Refresher Course and Chemistry Session. Please reference each of these activities webpages to determine if you must attend either or both.
