South Africa to get 2 new universities

“Two of South Africa’s provinces are to get new universities”, Mary Metcalfe, Director-General of the Department of Higher Education and Training said recently. These are Northern Cape and Mpumalanga which are the only two of nine provinces that do not have public universities.

“There is no plan or time frame (but there is) political commitment,” said Metcalfe. The two provinces also have national institutes of higher education and the government have been working on increasing their capacity.

The South African Parliament’s portfolio committee on higher education will start work on exploring the idea and will look at the practicalities, from the number of potential students and the type of programmes to be offered, to garnering a sense of what work the department had already done.
