​Due to the low throughput rate in undergraduate programmes and the resulting shortage of graduates in the country, the Council on Higher Education (CHE) convened a task team in 2012, to undertake a review of the undergraduate curriculum structure and to further investigate the implications of potential curriculum restructuring.

To that end the task team proposed the introduction of an extended and flexible curriculum structure for undergraduate education in South Africa. The report has been released for public comment and based on the feedback that is received the CHE will advise the Minister of Higher Education & Training regarding the feasibility and implementation of an extended curriculum structure.

All interested ECSA stakeholders are therefore invited to forward comments to the Manager: Education, Mrs Samantha Naidoo,, by COB on Wednesday, 20 November 2013.
