JOHANNESBURG - Lectures remain suspended at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT)'s campuses amid widespread protests.

The university has shut down all campuses while officials attempt to find a resolution to students' grievances.

Disgruntled students have been demonstrating over funding shortages from the National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NFSAS).

Protests started two weeks ago at the university's Soshanguve campus, north of Pretoria and have since spread to other areas including Mpumalanga.

The university's Willa De Ruyter says talk will continue between student leaders and the university's management.

"It's a priority for the university to resume academic activities suspended as soon as possible and to remain committed to engaging with the SRC to resolve the impasse."
