‘Arts to cut 71 modules’: UKZN turnaround strategy revealed

2013-11-01 00:00

THE University of KwaZulu-Natal’s School of Arts is to cut at least 71 modules and reduce staff numbers as it aims to assist the College of Humanities to eradicate its budget deficit of R45 million, according to a leaked report.

Over 700 modules were identified across the various colleges for failing to meet the new criteria outlined in draft minimum enrolment norms to be implemented in 2014. The new norms require a minimum of between 40 and 50 students per module in first year in order for the course to remain viable, while minimums have also been set for second- through to fourth-year students.
