The National University of Science and Technology (Nust) has introduced a March intake starting this year.
Despite arguments that the increase of enrolment numbers at Nust will only overburden the institution’s facilities, Higher Education, Science and Technology minister Amon Murwira said the development was good as long as the student-lecturer ratio is maintained. Murwira said the institution has been enrolling a low number of students in the science and technology departments, which has been a major cause of concern. Said Murwira:
There is no problem as long as there is no mis-match between the students and the facilities. With the semesterised system, students can be enrolled at any point of the year; if there are more students than the facilities then we have a problem.
