Police have been deployed to stabilise a group of about 200 University of South Africa students who marched outside the campus in Durban on Monday afternoon.
SAPS spokesman Captain Nqobile Gwala said the students were protesting near Stalwart Simelane Street about the slow process of registration and frustration over the payment of NSFAS grants.

Gwala said police were on scene and there were no incidents reported.
