Students were caught cheating at Wits in a WhatsApp group and are now set to have hearings with the University's disciplinary committee. This has lead Wits to implement many changes to their assessment protocols. 


Covid-19 has forced Universities to use online learning to continue their academic programme. Now, many Wits students want to de-register as they can't cope with online learning and are having issues balancing the workload. 


Wits has announced that their Final Year Medical Students will return to campus soon. This comes after the President's announcement on further measures being taken in the Higher Education sector. 


Deputy Minister of Higher Education, Buti Manamela has taken to his Twitter page to criticise Wits for continuing online learning. However, Wits’ Vice Chancellor was ready with a response to these criticisms.


Wits’ Deputy Vice Chancellor spoke to eNCA to discuss how Covid-19 has affected the University’s academic programme. Wits commences it's online learning programme on 20 April. 


The Dean of Students, Jerome September, has made it possible for students to apply to have a loan device so that online learning can take place. This allows students to have access to academic resources.
