Fees re­port scru­tiny

Pretoria News - - NEWS -

UNI­VER­SI­TIES South Africa says it wel­comes rec­om­men­da­tions con­tained in the re­port on the fea­si­bil­ity of free higher ed­u­ca­tion, but wanted more de­tail on fund­ing mod­els.

Its chief ex­ec­u­tive Ahmed Bawa said the rec­om­men­da­tions in the re­port were a big step for­ward for him. “We will have to look closely at the de­tail, so we have a thor­ough un­der­stand­ing of not leav­ing stu­dents with high debts,” Bawa said.

The as­so­ci­a­tion said it was dis­ap­pointed as “the re­port hasn’t ac­tu­ally been dealt with by the in­ter­min­is­te­rial com­mis­sion (on higher ed­u­ca­tion) or Trea­sury”. – ANA
