The University of South Africa (Unisa) has urged students to register online following the shutdown of Sunnyside campus in Tshwane.

The University of South Africa (Unisa) will be meeting with student leaders on Tuesday morning following protests at campuses across the country.

Students have made several demands including that the university supply National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) funded students with laptops and meal cards.

Unisa’s Martin Ramotshela says they have been looking at the demands.

“The demand that the university should accept any students who meet the minimum requirements, in other words, no student should be rejected if they meet the minimum requirement, irrespective of the cap that has been put by the department.”

Disgruntled SASCO members want to meet over demands ranging from academic programmes to financial aid.

The university failed to meet with student leaders on Monday afternoon.

However, Unisa has rescheduled to meet with them on Tuesday morning.
