However, the CHE said WSU still offers five one-year programmes “which are continuations of legacy qualifications which were formally accredited as aligned to the Higher Education Qualifications Framework (HEQF)":
- Advanced Diploma in Internal Auditing;
- Advanced Diploma in Journalism;
- BSc Honours in Zoology;
- Master of Medicine in Obstetrics and Gynaecology; and
- Postgraduate Diploma in Chemical Pathology.
A statement by CEO Whitfield Green said: “In 2013, a revised Higher Education Qualifications Sub-Framework (HEQSF) was gazetted as policy, replacing the HEQF, and all higher education institutions had to align their legacy qualifications to the HEQSF.
“New student registrations could be taken into the legacy qualifications until December 31 2019, after which the programmes had to be taught out or a new programme put in place that enabled continued offering in the area.
“The five qualifications listed above fall within this category and should be in teach-out until new replacement programmes are accredited and registered.”
