    Depressing, to say the least. The scandal affects adversely the reputation of a very well-regarded school. It would be a tragedy if it cast even a tiny bit of its unwelcome shadow on the many, many degrees earned there 100% legitimately, by hard work and good scholarship. Speaking of these honestly-earned degrees, I believe our late, esteemed member Uncle Janko completed his Doctorate by distance at UniZul, shortly before his untimely death. Were he still with us, I'm sure he would be extremely disappointed by these events at his alma mater - and have something to say about it, far more eloquent than anything I could ever muster.

    I hope every one of the culprits is suitably punished; these offences will never be forgotten. Never.

    Comment section was interesting...they still have brain drain going on bad in SA.

    This is not new. All the other varsities have this in some shape and form. That's why graduates arrive at your company and they can't even draft a memo or a letter, but the degree says BA/Bcom in Law or Finance. You have to spend tens of thousands retraining them.
    The volumes of students are too large for examiners to assess them properly, so they push many, many through by some means, random but normally race (a quota system). I used to mark at a large university for 10 years (until 5 years ago, when I left SA) assisting with exams and assignments.
    SA degrees are largely compromised, just a fact. The students that have been assessed to the highest stds, are well trained but they are in the minority. In the world, employers will not differentiate when someone say got a degree from a particular SA uni. They paint all graduates with the same brush.
