TUT update: 18 September 2018

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians, 

Over the past few weeks, coverage in the media has unfortunately created the impression among some of our stakeholders that activities at all TUT’s campuses have been affected by protest action.

In fact, academic activities have been continuing uninterrupted at the Pretoria, Ga-Rankuwa, Arts, Arcadia, Polokwane, Mbombela and eMalahleni Campuses.  

It is only at Soshanguve North and South Campuses where academic activities have been suspended. The University had to suspend academic activities at these campuses after protest erupted because of alleged vote rigging during the recent SRC Elections and the subsequent tragic death of one of our students. 

Management is putting processes in place to ensure that the campuses are safe and conducive to quality teaching and learning. It is of utmost importance to ensure that it is safe for students and staff to return to their normal activities.

The development of an academic catch-up plan is underway to ensure that students studying at the Soshanguve Campuses have many opportunities and support to learn and prepare for the final exams. 

The University continues to monitor the situation and updated information about the Soshanguve Campuses will be published here on the TUT website.
