Admission and Application

Applicants are required to lodge applications directly to the Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) through the central admission system. However, it should be noted that through the central admission system, TCU would only process the admission of applicants to various institutions and programmes. The final decision on who should be admitted is made by the University.

All new students are required to report for the orientation programme that normally takes place during the week preceding the beginning of the new academic year.

Successful applicants under self-sponsorship will be registered only after they have paid the requisite University fees.

Fees paid will not be refunded.

All students, if accepted, are expected to conform entirely to University regulations.

The deadline for registration of first year students will be two weeks, from the first day of the orientation week, while for continuing students it will be the Friday of the second week after the beginning of the first semester.

Except in exceptional circumstances, no student will be allowed to change subjects/courses later than the Friday of the fourth week after the beginning of the first semester. Transferring from one academic programme to another after admission and registration shall not be allowed.

  • Students discontinued on academic grounds from one School may be allowed to apply into another School provided that the sponsor approves.
  • Discontinued students wishing to re-apply in the same School must show evidence of having followed further studies satisfactory to the School.

Students will be allowed to be away from University studies for a maximum of two years if they are to be allowed to be re-admitted to the same year of studies where they left off.

Students discontinued from studies because of examination irregularities will be considered for re-admission after they have been away for three years. They will be required to re-apply and compete with other applicants for re-admission into first year.
