According to UCT's Head of Media Liaison, Elijah Moholola classes resumed on Monday.
Although a group of students attempted to disrupt the process this morning, Moholola says their actions are being closely monitored.
We are relying heavily on our usual campus security and we have brought minimal private security as well, just to ensure the safety of students and staff members who are not part of the protest.— Elijah Moholola, UCT's Head of Media Liaison
Moholola says SAPS will be called in should the situation escalate but that would be the last resort.
UCT says it cannot survive another week of disruptions. If protests continue, it means some academic programmes would have to be extended into 2017, and students would not graduate on time. This would also affecting the 2017 new intake.
Only a small group of students are currently involved in disruptions and according to Moholola the majority of students have already shown a willingness to get back to their studies.
