Police have made several arrests in connection with the ongoing protests at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

The university has not been able to confirm the exact number of students taken in.

The arrests were made as police headed off students making their way to the Belville campus.

Exams that were to be written in Belville on Moday have been postponed.

The university said the venue won’t be available for a few days.

CPUT will also no longer transport students to exam venues due to the security risk.

Exams at Wellington and the Wingfield military base in Goodwood will go ahead as planned.

Assessments were put on hold last week due to the violent protests over outsourcing and student debt.
