UCT management trying to ensure 2016 academic year is completed
The university this morning announced classes will remain suspended on Monday.
JOHANNESBURG - University of Cape Town (UCT) management says it is trying to find ways to ensure the resumption of classes and that the academic year is completed.
The university this morning announced classes will remain suspended on Monday and a decision was taken to close all campuses.
Protesting students calling for free education, among other demands, have forced a three-week closure. It's understood talks to resolve the impasse are continuing this weekend.
UCT spokesperson Elijah Moholola said, "The executive is also continuing discussion on options and scenarios that might still enable students to conclude the 2016 academic year successfully."
Vice-chancellor Prins Nevhutalu said, "We support those demands, but at the same time we need to make sure that we conclude the academic programme and that ideally, examinations should proceed normally and uninterrupted."
