Johannesburg - All academic activities at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) will proceed as scheduled despite student protests, the institution's vice chancellor Professor Ihron Rensburg said in a statement on Wednesday.

"We are determined to proceed with our academic programme and allow students to prepare for their end of year examinations. Indeed we note that more than 99% of students do not support the dubious agenda of the less than 1% of students who seem adamant to disrupt the university's activities," he said.
