Win a study bursary from Richfield

2018-02-28 06:01

THE Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology is an affordable Higher Education Institution and has been operating successfully for the past 28 years.

Richfield has 33 higher education campuses and 43 TVET campuses nationally.

The institution has been nationally and internationally recognised for its pioneering efforts in improving the quality of teaching for learning by integrating technology into the curriculum to improve success rates.

Richfield provides students with free access to high-tech devices and data networks – creating a “greener” culture of moving away from the excessive use of paper. Richfield is fully accredited to offer distance learning programmes.

Richfield has assisted well over a quarter million South Africans to graduate with sought-after qualifications to enter the job market. Richfield does not receive any subsidies, grants or allowances.

Richfield’s CEO, Jay Ramnundlall, emphasised that corporate South Africa should start looking at institutions like Richfield to which they sponsor bursaries, rather than limit their choices to public universities.

A feather in its cap is when Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology (RGIT) won the National Business of the Year Award for 2017.
