#Fees2017: UCT determined to complete academic year
Student protests flared up after an announcement that tuition fees would increase for 2017.
One person was been detained following clashes with police on Monday.
There will be a heavy police and security presence at the university today. UCT resumed operations yesterday, but was forced to suspend some services due to disruptions.
The university says alternative teaching methods, including online resources, have been made available to students ahead of the November exams.
Management says unless the academic programme resumes this week, the 2016 academic year will be lost.
The university's Elijah Moholola explains: "If we are to be disrupted any further, we will be faced with the severe possibility of closing down for the rest of the year."
At the same time, Cape Peninsula University of Technology students are to start with assessments at the Wingfield military base this week.
The institution moved classes to the off-site venue over the weekends following disruptions in the last three weeks by protesting students.
Meanwhile, academic activity continues at Stellenbosch, while lectures remain suspended at the University of the Western Cape.
University spokesperson Luthando Tyhalibongo says executive management met with students on Monday, in bid a to provide feedback on some of their demands.
