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.


We've all been wondering about how far NSFAS is with providing students with laptops and I'm sure many have even given up hope. However, NSFAS is officially one step closer and the laptops are even closer to being delivered.


NSFAS made the decision to pull the funding from over 5000 students earlier this year. The financial aid scheme is now said to have reversed it for hundreds of students. NSFAS has received a lot of backlash following this action but is supported by the Minister.

Solidarity Youth has sent a letter to NSFAS demanding that they pay students their outstanding fees and allowances. This comes after many students were informed that NSFAS will not be paying their fees which has now lead to lawyers giving the financial aid scheme two days to reverse this.


NSFAS has already nearing the 500 000 mark for applications received rom those wishing to have funding for the higher education studies in 2021. The Minister of Higher Education has congratulated the scheme on hitting this mark.


A TVET College has been struggling with obtaining their allowances and having it disbursed to students. This of course would present a major issue as some students are dependent on those allowances for their livelihoods.
