Dingaan Nzeke started this petition to Department of Higher Education and Training and

It has been almost three months now for most institutions' academic year started. Also meaning it has been three months students have been without food, study material and for most data to be able to access the online learning platforms. Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), Postgraduate Diplomas in Accounting (PGDA) and LLB (As a postgraduate qualification) were defunded by NSFAS at a blink of an eye when NSFAS just decided to wake up and tell students that they would no longer fund these qualifications, Myself I am a student of the University of Pretoria doing PGCE, and like many students we came to these sad news when most of us had already registered and occupied student accommodations. We as the above mentioned defunded students, demand that the Department of Higher education and Training together with NSFAS to review their decision and fund all these students as we would all graduate without our qualifications due to student debts when we finish our studies and already the student accommodations that we occupy are already demanding the money for rent from us. The South African Union of Students together with the relevant SRC's have failed these defunded students, because we get different narratives from them when we ask about defunded students. From one body, they say that NSFAS is still in talks with DHET to review its decision, from the other body the narrative we get is that NSFAS will no unfortunately not fund these qualifications anymore. We as the defunded students are with without food, without data to access the online platforms for learning. #AsinaMali #FreeEducation #FundPGCE #FundPGDA #FundLLB
