If you’re smart and want to get ahead in life, then tertiary education is essential. Today’s market place is highly competitive, especially in South Africa, and especially since the recession of 2009. A university or college degree is expensive. You can expect to pay between R10 000 and R20 000 for each year of undergraduate study in a South African university. Specialised degrees such as Medicine or Engineering can cost much more.

The Executive Mayor of the Mopani District Municipality in Giyani, Limpopo, Joshua Matlou, is giving away bursaries to students from poor backgrounds and those with disabilities in the district.
“These bursaries will be awarded to learners who have passed Grade 12 with a Bachelor Admission and who wish to further their studies in civil engineering, quantity surveying and construction in the engineering field; food management, animal science, plant production and soil science in the agricultural field; and accounting sciences and internal auditing in the sciences management field,” said Matlou.

Private or external study bursaries are available from South African companies to capable students on a yearly basis. This year De Beers, Old Mutual, SA Institute of Race Relations, SA Weather Service, Spoornet and Vodacom are just a handful of bursaries available to promising students. Owing to our country’s scarce and critical skills list, many mining and engineering companies in particular provide contract bursaries (repayable via one year of work for every year of study); it’s just matter of applying for them.
