UKZN Targets Top Pupils in Port Shepstone Region
UKZN hosted an Information Day aimed at top Grade 12 learners in and around Port Shepstone on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast.
About 120 learners braved the wet weather to attend the event during which professional services staff from the University’s Colleges of Health Sciences and Law and Management Studies provided the youngsters with information to assist in making informed career choices.
Students from a variety of high schools were able to find out more about the various degrees offered in each of the Colleges and also about how to apply to attend UKZN next year.
The UKZN team encouraged students to work hard and to aim for higher than the required marks needed for certain degrees because of stiff competition for places at UKZN.
‘We receive thousands of applications for places to study through the Colleges but only a few hundred get chosen,’ UKZN Schools Liaison Officer Mrs Sarda Pillay told the pupils.
