The Minister of Higher Education is giving an update on the plans for the Higher Education sector under lockdown level 4. He is speaking live now.

 

The briefing will take place on Wednesday afternoon at 4PM.

UPDATE: 

The Department of Higher Education announced:

Minister Blade Nzimande will brief South Africa about measures in the Post-School Education and Training system to ensure compliance to the regulations in the fight against COVID-19.

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.
