The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town Dr Max Price says a statement released by the Council on Higher Education is misleading and not done in the right way.
CHE (Council on Higher Education) released a statement on Wednesday that the University of Limpopo, the University of Zululand and the University of Cape Town had been informed that their accreditation for Bachelor of Laws (LLB) Programme would be withdrawn.
Price says they received a notice to respond by May 2018 on a number of issues that arose out of the accreditation process.
It says if we fail to respond by May 2018 then they are entitled to withdraw the accreditation.— Max Price, UCT vice-chancellor
We fully intend to reply and respond on the issues they have raised and we have no reason to think that the responses will be anything less than perfect.— Max Price, UCT vice-chancellor
Price says UCT remains the leading law school in the continent and ranks 40th in the world and they've been consistent for the past three years.
He says a lot of issues raised by CHE are process driven and don't necessarily speak to the quality of the LLB degree offered by UCT.
