GOOD CAUSE: CPUT student Xolelwa Olayi with Vice-Chancellor Mazwi-Tanga and Council Chair Bikwani at last year’s highly successful Bursary fundraiser.

Financially disadvantaged students can expect some relief thanks to an exclusive fund raising cocktail evening.

“It is very unfortunate that South Africans and South African Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are fixated with tuition fees as a costing mechanism rather than the full cost of studies. If we look at the full cost of studies per year - which could be up to five times more - maybe, just maybe, South Africans earning relatively good salaries will realise that very few students can afford to further their studies without financial aid.”

Dr Garth van Gensen and Andile Blaai of CPUT's Advancement Department are urging staff, alumni and industry to support the university's innovative new way of raising funding for student bursaries.
