Cavendish University Zambia has dismissed media reports suggesting that the university has been shut down.
According to newspaper reports, the Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Authority -TEVETA – deregistered Cavendish University for not complying with TEVETA standards.
But Cavendish University Vice Chancellor, Professor Mutale Musonda says the university does not offer technical or vocational programmes and is therefore not regulated by TEVETA.
Professor Musonda says the university is registered under the Higher Education Authority and not TEVETA.
He has advised all students that the university will resume residential classes for distant students on July 10 while full and part time students will resume lessons on July 24,2017.
