The Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology, Bloemfontein campus, has made it possible for four students to study further by awarding them bursaries.

The foursome is among the scores of students who have enrolled at the college for the 2019 academic year.

The lucky bursary recipients will study towards their chosen careers.

Oganne Pule, Bloemfontein’s campus manager, said the bursary recipients attended an open day session where potential students received counselling on career choices.

He said the bursary reci­pients were chosen based on written presentations on entering the Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology bursary fund during the open day.

Pule said the bursary fund was a community social investment initiative which the institution set up to aid deserving students. He said the bursary fund was established considering the importance of education to positively change the lives of youth and empowering people.

The open day session was held on Friday (01/02) and coincided with the institution’s official opening and registration for this year.

Pule said the open day session also provided information about the institution’s legality and programmes offered.

To verify the programmes offered and the legality of the institution, people can contact regulatory bodies, the Council of Higher Education, Umalusi, the Council for Quality Assu­rance in General and Further Education and Training, SETA skills programmes and the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations Nated courses.
