Slow journey to graduation pays off

The road to graduation took a detour for two Cape Town-based media specialists. Gasant Abarder and Nashira Davids dropped out of Journalism studies years ago to pursue flourishing careers, but the pull to complete their degrees always remained. The pair completed their portfolio of evidence for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and completed their BTech year in 2017. Abarder is the Regional Executive Editor of the Independent Group and Davids is a journalist and News Editor at the Tiso Blackstar Group which publishes the Sunday Times. Around two decades after starting their studies the pair graduate this week.
