New Application 

Returning students - you have previously applied (but never studied or completed a year of study at CUT)

Applications at the Central University of Technology work in cycles. Each year there is a new application cycle, and your previous year’s application status does not carry over. Thus, you must re-apply for consideration in the next academic year. You re-apply because you have a record on the system, which you will now update with your current information. If you cannot update/change a field, it is required that you attach a document.

If you did not complete a year of study, you also re-apply.


CUT Continuing Students

You are currently a registered student and plan to start with a new programme of study, you must apply to do so.
