What is a University of Mpumalanga (UMP) late application for 2023?

A late application is an application for a course that has already started. If you have already been accepted to the university but you apply for a course that has already begun, that’s a late application.

Late applications are less competitive because the university has less time to find a suitable student to fill the spot. That’s why they often give preference to students who were unable to apply on time.

Why should you submit a late application?

There are many reasons why you should submit a late application. It may be that you’re applying to a course that has very limited places or has a large number of applicants. You may also be applying to an honors course that isn’t open to all students.

The university may have a strict policy regarding late applications. But, if they are willing to accept one, it’s usually because they are in need of more students.

Here are some of the more common reasons why students miss the deadline:

  • The deadline for applying to a program has already passed. If you get your application in late, you can still get in even if the program is full.
  • You have applied for the wrong course. Some courses have limited places and close quickly. You might have applied to the wrong course if you have applied to a different course.
  • You have missed the online application deadline. Some universities require that you apply online. If you miss the online application deadline, you can’t apply.
  • You have missed the paper application deadline. Some universities require a paper application. If you miss the paper application deadline, you can’t apply
