    1. To Loraine Koekemoer

      Thank you for your comments and questions.

      What can i say and how can i advise with your problem and lack of feedback from ETDP SETA and INSETA. All I can suggest is to contact these institutions directly and send a letter to the Minister of Higher Education airing your views and disappointment. You could also post a comment on their social media pages. The main priority of these institutions is to promote education and build a better South Africa. Perhaps you can also sent a note to your department head and Minister of Health who might be able to assist you.

      Thank you for your comment. The only advise we can provide you, is to contact the University of Zululand and confirm your payment information. Ask for proof of payment which you can then furnish to ETDP Seta.
