Thousands of matriculants turned up to apply at the campus, which had about 636 spaces available across 14 courses.
You can apply again at TUT in March so that you can start your studies in the June semester.
The neighbouring University of Pretoria was relatively quiet :shorter queue of late applicants.
The department of higher education and training is hoping matriculants like those turned away at TUT will respond positively to its campaign meant to attract them to the public Further Education and Training (FETs) colleges to apply. FETs are open for late applications and registration from Tuesday.
there are 50 FET Colleges with 264 campuses all over the country
