South African universities are experienced significant increases in enrollment since the dawn of democracy. However, this progress could beovershadowed by a number of challenges, including funding constraints, governance issues, and infrastructure problems at institutions

Many of the learners who received their matric results in the final days of January 2024, wanted to enroll in programmes at universities. The higher education department revealed how the release of the matric results is impacting universities. 

Work is underway to establish two new universities in South Africa. The courses that could be offered at the new institutions has been revealed. 

While acknowledging the challenges in the higher education sector, Minister Nzimande believes the significant strides in the sector cannot be ignored. The minister was speaking during the SONA debate this week. 

Budget cuts are set to have a major impact on the higher education sector. This is concerning as thousands of young people are set to embark on tertiary education qualifications at universities in the coming days. 

Many matriculants have set their sights on tertiary education programme as they key to their future careers. However, not all the individuals who meet the eligibility criteria for university programmes can be accommodated in 2024. 

More than one million students will embark on a tertiary education in 2024. The cost of this journey will cost more than it did twelve months ago due to fee increases. 

The start of the 2024 academic year is now just a few weeks away. Many students who applied to study in 2024 can track their 2024 university application status to see where they will study and which courses they will pursue this year. 

The Higher Education department received a budget allocation of  R133.8 billion for the 2023/24 financial year. A portion of this budget is being spent on improving the county's universities through various infrastructure projects.
