This briefing is expected following President Ramaphosa's announcement that all contact lessons at Universities will be suspended from today, 30 June.
Ramaphosa further said, "The Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation will provide further details on these arrangements."
Students are now only allowed limited access to campuses but residences have remained open. Universities are either heading into or are currently in their vacation period.
Some students had their exams disrupted by the President's 14 day lockdown announcement with some exams being moved to online or simply just postponed.
