TUT International Students

TUT International Students, welcome to the International Students Office. For the duration of your study as an international student, we will assist you. We hope that you will find your academic experience at TUT fulfilling and your interaction with other students enriching. There are over 2 000 international students across our eight campuses – from undergraduate students, postgraduate students and exchange students, to postdoctoral fellows.

We arrange orientation for first-year students and assist you to settle into the university. We symbolise the spirit of being home-away-from-home among the students. There are international students from Africa, Asia and Europe. We also organise educational tours to places of interest in South Africa.
TUT is truly an institution in service of the Southern African community. One of its key focuses is, therefore, the economic and social development of the Southern African region. In its quest to promote knowledge and technology, it provides the market with a career-focused workforce. It also aims at making a significant contribution to creating sustainable economic growth that will impact on the standard of living of all of the region’s people.
The education offered at TUT, with its entrepreneurial focus, opens up unlimited opportunities for students to become job creators and entrepreneurs. This is established by creating prosperity through the stimulation of innovation and creative thinking. This is facilitated by various incubators and technology stations.
TUT strives to be a leading institution, viewing the diversity of its staff, students and other stakeholders as strength to be nurtured in service of the country and the African continent. The University is committed to ongoing transformation to make it ever more responsive to the needs of Southern Africa and the continent, as a whole.
