DUT hopes to resume classes on Tuesday

The Durban University of Technology says it hopes to resume classes at it's Ritson and Steve Biko campuses on Tuesday.


It's after a group of protesting students interrupted the first day of the academic year- over registration issues.


According to DUT, the protest was not sanctioned by the SRC but by a political student organisation.


The university's spokesperson Alan Khan says some students and parents were intimidated and prevented from entering the campuses.

 "That kind of intimidation has to end and the reality of it is the university has extended its registration period by two weeks which is a concern that any further delay to the commencement to the academic programme will compromise the students. 


"Let's not forget that 98% of all first year students have already registered and ready to go. More than 92% of returning students are registered and ready to go so we are hoping that we can resolve whatever issues remains and work together with our SRC so our academic programme can continue."
