“I think our Minister didn’t mention a lot of details, he didn’t give much details because are we going to regain the two months that we have already lost. Some of the universities did receive the laptops but then as the TVET colleges we didn’t receive any,” says one concerned student.
Return to campus
Minister Nzimande says only 33% of the student student population will be allowed to return to campuses, delivery sites and residences under Level 3 lockdown, which is expected to kick in from June 1.
Nzimande says the return will be on condition that the students can be safely accommodated and supported in line with the health and safety protocols as directed by the Department
The Minister says his department is committed to saving the 2020 academic year while also saving lives.
He says the Higher Education sector has adopted the theme “Save the Academic Year Save Lives.”
