- Wits University

Message from Professor Adam Habib, Vice-Chancellor and Principal on behalf of the Senior Executive Team:

The University of the Witwatersrand and the Students' Representative Council have reached resolution on a series of proposals put forward today. Read management's proposal and the SRC's statement. The SRC put forward a further elaboration on their demands on 28 October 2015. Read the statement.

In light of this, the academic programme and all University activities will commence on Wednesday, 28 October 2015.

We have agreed to postpone the examinations and a new examination timetable will be shared with students before the end of the week.

We recognise the achievement of the student movement to place on the national agenda the issue of affordable, quality higher education.

We sincerely apologise to all staff, students, parents and all those affected by the recent protests. We thank you for your patience during this trying time.
