HESA condemns violent student protests at Universities

29-01-14 USAf 0 comment

Higher Education South Africa (HESA), the representative body of South Africa’s universities, takes note of the recent student protests related to the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) funding allocations at the University of Johannesburg and Durban University of Technology. While we acknowledge that students have the right to express their grievances with regards to NSFAS allocations and related issues, HESA is disturbed by reports of unwarranted violence targeted at fellow students and the leadership at these universities.
