VARSITY College student advisors spent two days at Shelly Centre assisting varsity students and those seeking advice on which career path to take.

The turnout of the “Meet your Student Advisor” campaign was impressive as many approached the College stand for information.

Charl Ochler of Varsity College said its very important to get a student advisor.

“The importance of meeting a student advisor is to provide students with the opportunity of discussing the various career options they would like to pursue after tertiary studies.

“By identifying these careers we are able to link this to the qualifications Varsity College offers that can take students into these careers.

“Further to this we also advise on our partnerships, entry requirements, accreditation, applications and closing dates and fees as well as what Varsity College has to offer from an academic, practical, sport and social­ perspective,” said Ochler.

“We received interest from parents and working adults for part-time studies through our business school known as The Business School at Varsity College.”

Ochler said the aim of the visit was to bring student advisors to the people as many can’t get to campuses to get advice on career choices.

“We have pupils from South Coast schools who register with Varsity College.

“We understand that to drive to our campus in Westville to meet with a student advisor can be a logistical nightmare, so we decided to bring as much as possible of Varsity College to the South Coast as the mall is central and is an accessible place for pupils from the area to meet us.”
