CHE Seminar on Proposed Undergraduate Curriculum Structure

The University of Zululand (UNIZULU) held a seminar on the Proposed Undergraduate Curriculum Structure by the Council on Higher Education (CHE) on 13 November 2013, at KwaDlangezwa Campus.

This Seminar, presented by Professor Ian Scott from University of Cape Town, provided a platform for UNIZULU academic, support and student communities to air their voices on the CHE proposal for an extended and flexible undergraduate curriculum structure. Prof Scott said the challenge is improving graduate production in terms of number, quality, attributes and equity of distribution for social, economic and cultural developmemt. “It’s also about revitalizing the whole education system as well as minimizing the unsustainable wastage of talent,” he said.

All higher education institutions are invited to comment on the proposal by 29 November 2013.
