UCT's contribution to 'free' higher education and its difficulties with transformation were but some of the topics that Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price tackled when he addressed a lunchtime meeting of the National Press Club of South Africa on 2 June.

Guest speaker at the session, Price started off by noting his support for the recent split of the national Department of Education into two - the Ministry for Basic Education, focused on schools, and the Ministry for Higher Education and Training. For one, said Price, this puts an end to the "tension" over a single budget pie that, previously, had to be divided between schooling and higher education. (That battle, he added, would now rage at Cabinet level.)
