THE future does not look bright for about 100 students who were allegedly defrauded by the University of Venda offering a degree that was not accredited.
Students, mainly in the school of agriculture, who had registered for an Agri-Business degree, were on Tuesday told that they will only know their fate in March.
The degree has been offered since 2003 with hundreds of students enrolling for it to take their careers in agriculture to another level .
But now they are left in the lurch after some students had already completed the course.
The institution had allegedly been claiming that the degree was classified under the Bachelor of Agriculture.
The university is reportedly not accredited to offer the degree with the SA Qualifications Authority.
The university had been sending the students from pillar to post without providing satisfactory answers about what actually transpired to make the institution fail to register the degree to be accredited.
Some students said if the university did not come with a solution in March they would seek legal advice. They said the institution had robbed them.
The university has generated more than R1million from unsuspecting students since the inception of the course .
Questions sent to university spokesperson Takalani Dzaga were not responded to at the time of going to press yesterday.
