CAPE TOWN - Some Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) students are expected to start writing their final exams from today.

The exams were called off late last year due to chaotic tuition fee protests. A number of students will start their exams today and will be writing until next month.

The university has also secured venues in Gauteng, the Eastern Cape and Kwa-Zulu Natal to allow students, who have gone home, to write their final exams.

CPUT will send staff members to Namibia, Zambia, the DRC and Nigeria to assist foreign students who will be writing in those countries.

Those who were suspended by the institution for their part in the violent protests, will not be allowed to write.

The institution's management is not expecting any disruptions during the exam process.
