College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science Visits Harding
The College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science (AES) delivered a presentation at the Harding Career Day Expo organised by the Department of Education, Umuziwabantu Municipality and community leaders.
UKZN’s Ms Patience Mdlaka, addressing the 1 500 Grade 12 learners from about 11 high schools in and around Harding, explained what was involved in attending UKZN including the acquisition of bursaries, scholarships, financial aid and other assistance offered. She also highlighted entrance requirements for studying at the University.
This was followed by the showing of the UKZN and AES College video which the learners enjoyed.
At the UKZN exhibition stand, learners and educators had access to UKZN’s Study Guide, AES College brochures and Central Application Office (CAO) forms. Learners also received College goodie bags.
A teacher from the Oxford International High School, Ms Ncumisa Ndabeni, said: ‘We were extremely fortunate to have UKZN staff address our learners on issues the youngsters are not generally aware of. The literature supplied was extremely beneficial to both the learners and educators.’
