This is what Adam Habib said about access to higher education

Yes, Adam Habib said university is not for everyone.

But wait, that’s not all he said. 

Speaking at the first day of hearings facilitated by the fees commission‚ Habib said matriculants “must have other options. If you don’t go to university‚ you will still land up with a future”.

“At the moment‚ there are many students that would be more appropriately located in Technical Vocational Education and Training (Tvet) system. Three to four million young people are sitting at home. [We need to] start making sure that the four million are in Tvet colleges,” Habib said.

According to him there is a need to create alternates to university like vocational training.

“The challenge we confront is a challenge of our ambitions and resources. We have to increase access to education‚ to healthcare. What we have got to figure out is how we get there‚” Habib said.
