We specialize in the management of bursary and scholarship programmes.
These are awarded by companies who are aiming to attract potential skilled employees. They are therefore offering a bursary to enable you to complete your studies but you will need to sign a contract in terms of which you undertake to work for the company on graduation.

Should you not fulfill this obligation you will be obliged to repay the bursary funding, often with interest or administration costs added.
