Pretoria - The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) has extended its recess period, as protests over tertiary education fees rage on.

"The Tshwane University of Technology this morning resolved to extend the recess period at all campuses. The decision was taken due to ongoing disruptions at its campuses," spokesperson Willa de Ruyter said.

"From Thursday, 29 September 2016, the official extended recess period will be applicable to all TUT campuses until 10 October 2016."

De Ruyter said tests scheduled to be written at the institution between September 26-30 would be rescheduled for after October 10, 2016.

"The Academic Excellence Awards, scheduled for Thursday, 29 September 2016, will take place as planned. Although the university recognises the right of students to participate in protest action, it is regrettable that the current national drive for fee free education has caused the level of disruption that resulted in the suspension of academic activities," she said.
