Universities South Africa’s Ahmed Bawa said “What it means is that Unisa will be in the position where it’s admitting 20,000 fewer students this year and that, of course, means there will be consequences in terms of access and that’s a serious, big issue that needs to be dealt with in a more systemic way.”
