JOHANNESBURG - Student representatives are threatening to bring tertiary institutions to a standstill still on Monday.

That's after a meeting with Higher Education Minister Naledi Pandor failed to resolve their disputes.

Students want free education and their debt to be scrapped.

The aim of the meeting was to iron out their concerns so institutions could reopen.

The South African Union of Students has called for a countrywide shutdown of universities. 

Some KwaZulu-Natal universities suspended classes last week, while students went on a hunger strike at Wits University.

A student was shot dead at the Durban University of Technology during a protest.
