Change the world


As previously communicated, the Executive Committee of Senate (ECS) approved the shifting of the commencement of the 2021 academic year from 15 March to 23 March 2021 due to the delays experienced in receiving NSFAS funding confirmations for qualifying students which also then delayed their registration. 

As a result of the above later start, the 2021 Academic Calendar as initially approved by ECS is currently under review to make provision for this lost teaching week. The amendments being envisaged included extending the first teaching cycle by a week and hence also shifting the mid-year end of module assessment period.

The first teaching cycle recess period remains as is i.e. 1 – 9 May 2021.

A revised 2021 Academic Calendar is being considered whilst students are still registering. A proposal in this regard will serve at ECS by mid-April and subsequently shared with the University community.

We wish our staff and students well as we work towards the completion of the first teaching cycle.
