The National University has said that about 7,000 students will attend the university in the first term alone.
The university said that this includes courses ranging from certificate to PhDlevel, and that about 2,000 students take the short-term courses conducted by the university every year.
Registration for the new term began today with 3,085 new students. The university said that 2,396 students attended the university in the first term last year, which means that the number of students increased by 29 percent this year, also making it the term with the most number of students to date.
They said that the number of students will increase further as enrolment will continue until 31 January depending on availability.
An orientation program was conducted in two sessions last Sunday for new students.
