Professor Ahmed Bawa, Universities South Africa CEO, provides an update on the preparedness for the 2021 academic year.


The 2020 matric results were released by the Basic Education Department and learners achieved a matric pass rate of 76.2%.

Throughout South Africa, universities are preparing to welcome new students for the 2021 academic year.

Universities South Africa (USAf) CEO Professor Ahmed Bawa announced that South African universities are prepared for the start of the academic year.

Bawa stated that each university will begin the academic year in its own way.

Some universities will convert fully to online learning whereas other universities may allow certain faculties to resume contact learning on campus while the rest study online.

The organisation's CEO believes that blended learning will be the norm for most universities and may be taken into the future as it is more practical for students.

Blended learning includes online learning from home or residences and contact learning in the lecture halls on university campuses.

Professor Ahmed Bawa stated that the 2020 academic year helped universities prepare for the 2021 academic year as they know exactly what to expect and how to work around lockdown levels and regulations to ensure learning continues while keeping students and lecturers safe.
