All students in South Africa as well as the world had the opportunity to share in the feelings of chaos the 2020 academic year presented. Which forms of support has the Department provided for varsity students to complete the academic year?


The Portfolio Committee of Higher Education are now concerned about the delays being presented in finalising the audit of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS). They were recently briefed on the outcomes of the audit.

Buti Manamela, Deputy Minister of Higher Education has addressed the issue of students not having their certificates which prove that they have completed their studies. It was also recently revealed that this certificate backlog goes as far back as 1992. 


The Minister in charge of Higher Education has defended NSFAS Administrator, Randall Carolissen, against various accusations laid against him by unions and employees. The Union previously initiated protests at NSFAS head offices.


Deputy Minister Manamela has said that he is happy with the way Lovedale TVET College has put safety protocols in place to protect against Covid. However, students at the College do not necessarily agree with the Deputy Minister.
