JOHANNESBURG – The minister of higher education and training, Blade Nzimande, briefs the media on his recommendations for the 2017 fees adjustments for universities and technical colleges.
The briefing follows the Council on Higher Education report on recommended 2017 fee adjustments, as well as the minister’s ongoing consultations with key stakeholders.
In August Nzimande postponed an announcement on whether there will be a university fee increase in 2017.
The Council on Higher Education has recommended that the increase be linked to inflation at around six percent.
Students are demanding that fees not be increased at all.
