It is reported that this year, WUT has admitted 9242 undergraduates. According to the needs of pandemic prevention and control, WUT encourages freshmen to enroll independently and arranges one-to-one volunteers to help new students with their enrollment, which not only improves the registration experience of new students, but also effectively reduces the crowd gathering. The university also adopts the combination of online orientation and on-site orientation to make preparations for new students’ registration in stages to ensure the smooth progress of the welcoming work.
