PIETERMARITZBURG OPEN DAY FOR HUMANITIES STUDENTS A SUCCESS

Prospective students, keen to pursue a degree in the Humanities field at UKZN, braved the cold and rain to attend the 2013 Undergraduate Information Open Day held on the Pietermaritzburg campus.

Crowds of students, some accompanied by parents and their educators, flocked to the information sessions eager to find out more about the degrees and career opportunities available for study in the College of Humanities.

Information sessions were held by various Deans and Representatives of the Schools within the College.

The Dean and Head of the School of Applied Human Sciences, Professor Nhlanhla Mkhize, addressed students, encouraging them to consider pursuing a career as criminologists, social workers or psychologists. ‘There is a huge demand for social workers and clinical psychologists in South Africa hence make the right choice and come study with us at UKZN,’ he said.

Within the information sessions, students were informed about the admission criteria for entry into the various degree programmes and were made aware of all the available academic opportunities, student funding criteria and student support services.

Nsikayethu Secondary School learner, Ms Naledi Ramarob, expressed her interest in becoming a UKZN student. ‘I want to study Architecture at the University because I am fascinated by the concept of designing and creating buildings,’ she said.
