With the 2020 school year coming to an end and the academic year for some tertiary institutions finishing, higher education now has to put plans in place for next year as we all try to live alongside the virus and minimise it's effects.
Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, has detailed when Universities will be completing the current academic year as well when they'll be starting the next. Surprisingly, these dates might not be what we originally thought they would be due to the pandemic.
The Minister announced that students who are not funded and affected by the N+ rule and have issued appeals will have their applications looked at more closely. This process is currently underway as Universities submit information to NSFAS.
