Law and Management Studies Recruitment Drive
The College of Law and Management Studies recently hosted Grade 11 and Grade 12 pupils from Lesotho to give them a broader view of how pursuing careers in Law and Commerce will benefit them and the world.
The aim of the strategic recruitment initiative was to provide prospective students with vital information on various career opportunities, entrance requirements and scholarship opportunities they could benefit from through making UKZN their institution of choice.
The College’s Public Relations Manager, Ms Hazel Langa, delivered a presentation explaining in detail the programmes offered, the different campuses, how the University’s point system worked and procedures for applications, and interesting facts about world firsts achieved by UKZN graduates.
The pupils also received marketing material to ensure they had all the information necessary to discuss their career options with their parents back home.
Grade 12 pupil, Ms Thethuwe Tsoboko of Dahon High School in Lesotho, said after hearing the presentation and the success story about law graduate Mr Ntokozo Qwabe, she was even more convinced about studying Law.
Classmate Ms Lerato Tohlang said her future lay in the Accounting profession.
‘I want to be a Chartered Accountant because I am passionate about Accounting. I can’t wait to study at UKZN next year and I’ll work really hard so I can get a scholarship and make my parents proud,’ she said.
Apart from the enlightening presentation, the students also enjoyed the warm hospitality of Durban through sight-seeing and visited various large organisations in Durban such as the Tongaat Hulett sugar mill.
