SASCO calls for an extension of study permits

2 November 2015

In light of the recent nationwide campus shut down, SASCO has learnt that the revised exam time tables will negatively affect international students whose study permits will expire within the duration of the examinations.

Understanding our commitment to academic excellence, we are determined to ensure that no student is negatively affected by the shut down and the protest actions. As such we are working to ensure that the study permits be extended in correlation with the revised institutions academic program. We are currently engaging the Department of Home Affairs to commit that no student will be prohibited from writing their exams owing to their visa status.
