Unauthorized tutoring on campus; students urged to verify University approval of services.
It has come to the attention of the University of Pretoria that a private business has been targeting students from the EBIT Faculty for private tutoring in preparation for the upcoming examinations. The tutor sessions are presented from venues on the University’s Hatfield Campus ostensibly trying to create the impression that the sessions are approved by the University. The use of the venues has not been approved and thus the venues are being used without permission to generate income for the private business. The University is not opposed to students seeking additional tutoring, but it should be made clear that the onus is on the student seeking tutoring that the external tutoring business has been vetted, approved and/or accredited by the University.
