Pretoria – The Commission of Inquiry into Higher Education and Training will this week hold hearings about university fees for students.
The hearings will be held, in Pretoria, on Wednesday and Thursday as well as in Vanderbijlpark, on Friday.
The commission will also be hearing presentations from stakeholders in various areas around the country until September.
The commission was established by President Jacob Zuma in January to investigate the feasibility of free higher education and training in South Africa.
The commission was expected to finish its work within eight months, but recently President Zuma amended the Terms of Reference of the commission and extended the period upon which the commission should complete its work.
It will now complete its work by the 30 June 2017.
