Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, confirmed that NSFAS students will be given laptops to make online learning more accessible to them. Unisa has announced that their NSFAS students have started getting deliveries of laptops.
This comes just in time as Unisa students have embarked on their May/June examination period.
Students initially would have collected the laptops from Unisa offices but these offices are now closed.
Unisa has stated, "All NSFAS students who opted for the laptop option have, however, been allocated to a supplier of laptops. The suppliers will contact the students directly to arrange for distribution".
