Studying at a foreign university: what is at stake?

For millions of African youths and adults, whose countries’ education system is found to be chaotic and seriously underdeveloped, studying in a foreign university is a matter of pride, excellence and a quick passport to getting a good, well-paying job.

In the SADC region, South Africa, Namibia and Botswana appear to be the countries of choice to study for thousands of SADC citizens – undergraduates and post-graduates – the majority of whom hope to stay put in these so-called fine countries for various reasons once the game of study is over.

SADC higher education: figures and facts

A study conducted by the Southern African Regional Universities Association (SARUA) found that the SADC region comprises 66 public universities, 119 publicly-funded polytechnics or colleges and 178 private universities or colleges.

SARUA is an organisation representing vice-chancellors of public universities.

South Africa has 23 of the public universities and 70% of overall enrolments in the region, according to the same report. Five of the 15 countries – Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland – have a single public university.

In other countries, numbers range from two in Malawi and Mauritius to nine in Zimbabwe.

Zambia has three public universities, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Mozambique have four, Madagascar has six and Tanzania has eight.

Welcome to the new world

But studying in a foreign university, whether private or public, is not bread and butter as the fees are high, the challenges are enormous and the pressure is tremendous.

Therefore, only the youths issued from the well-off families, financially stable and working people attempt this epic journey.

Caroline Nzoigba, a DRC student who proceeded to South Africa to study for a master’s after graduating from the University of Kinshasa, recounts tales of excitement, sadness, loneliness, xenophobia, shock of cultures, discrimination and violent crime.

“The pasture is not always green on the other side,” Nzoigba says. “Sometimes, you feel that everyone – lecturers, administrators and fellow students – is against you and seems to be plotting your downfall.” “As a foreign student, you don’t get the same treatment as locals in all aspects, and that really pisses you off,” she says, adding that rent, transport, funding, among others, are first of all given priority to locals.

“Jane”, a Zambian student who studied in Zimbabwe for six years and went on to live there for 10 years, says the situation is not always sweet as many people think.

“If I had my way, I wouldn’t send my future kids or any of my family to study abroad, especially in Southern Africa, and in these so-called advanced countries”.

“We all had the same level of study and the same degrees and attended the same institution, but I was discriminated against when it came to jobs.”

“I still believe that I was good enough to get those positions but twice I missed out because I was a foreigner.”

Portrait of postgraduate studies in SADC

There are around 57 700 masters and 10 600 doctoral students in SADC, most of them in South Africa, a SARUA study found, adding that postgraduate registrations were critically low through much of the region, impacting on high level skills available.

However, despite getting the biggest chunk of postgraduate registrations, South Africa is seen to be a hostile land for many foreign students, who nevertheless brave the country’s xenophobic tendencies – both from government and learning institutions – to harvest success.

An eye-opener research conducted by the Academy of Science of South Africa and published by the Mail & Guardian newspaper shows that international students who attend South African institutions tend to finish their doctorates faster (in about 4.5 to 4.6 years) than their local counterparts (who take an average of 4.9 years).

“The quicker the completion rate for a postgraduate degree, the more the institution benefits from government subsidies,” the research added.

“Not so many bursaries are available for postgraduate international students … Yet the research that we do is applicable to South Africa and benefits the same country that denies funding to international students,” the South Africa-based weekly newspaper quoted one postgraduate student as saying.

Msunduzi offers pupils full bursaries

Pietermaritzburg – Two matriculants from the Emafakatini Location near Vulindlela were bursting with excitement yesterday when Msunduzi Mayor Chris Ndlela announced they would receive full bursaries to study at university this year.

The two young women, Thobeka Ngcobo and Nonsikelelo Ngcobo (not related), were among 16 pupils who received full bursaries yesterday at the city hall.

As part of the mayor’s special projects, Ndlela also named 58 pupils whom the council would assist in paying their registration fees. This is the fourth year the mayor’s office has awarded these bursaries.

Thobeka Ngcobo, who received four distinctions in matric last year, said she was one of the first in her family to attend university.

 “I never thought I would get this opportunity. It is my dream come true,” she said.

The ecstatic Ngcobo would study for her Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Westville.

“My results from matric were very good. I received As in mathematics, accounting, Zulu and business economics. I am so grateful for this opportunity,” she said.

Ngcobo said that her parents were very proud of her when they received the news that she would be studying at a tertiary institution.

“We didn’t have the money for my studies. We suffered a little in our lives so I am very grateful for this gift from the mayor and the municipality,” she said.

Nonsikelelo Ngcobo would study for a Bachelor of Education degree at UKZN’s Edgewood campus.

The project by the mayor’s office awarded the bursaries to pupils who hail from disadvantaged backgrounds, whose parents earn less than R1 000 and who excelled at school.

More than R400 000 in bursaries was awarded yesterday.

Msunduzi’s youth manager Sibongile Mchunu said they chose the pupils very carefully.

“We looked at the pupils who did exceptionally well at school, but did not have the funds to further their studies,” she said.

The 74 pupils to benefit were from the Edendale, Vulindlela, Imbali and Azalea areas in Pietermaritzburg.

The pupils would study a range of courses, varying from engineering to teaching, to horticulture.

Ndlela advised the pupils to concentrate on their studies, as this was a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for them.

“Education needs sacrifice and you should pursue your studies. Entertainment can take the back seat until you qualify in your respective fields,” he advised the pupils.

Ndlela told the pupils that they were the “lucky ones” and they should not waste the opportunity.

Bursaries offered by SA’s biggest companies

University fees have been under the spotlight since the latter parts of 2015, when students rose up in protest against the restrictive costs to study.

Following weeks of protests in October and November 2015, President Jacob Zuma eventually declared there would be a no fee increase at universities in 2016. To absorb the loss of revenue, government set aside R6.9 billion in additional funding for universities.

However, according to higher education minister, Blade Nzimande, on top of government funding, corporates in South Africa need to foot the bill for higher education, as they will ultimately be absorbing the skilled workforce.

Many companies in South Africa already offer a number of bursaries and scholarship programs, which help students pay for part of or all of the fees needed to study.

Bursaries and scholarship programs are often tied to recruitment, as companies pay for students to develop specific skills they are in need of.

BusinessTech looks at the 10 biggest companies on the JSE (excluding the recently-listed AB Inbev Breweries), to determine what graduate programs they offer.

It’s important to note that the bursaries listed below are not always an annual given – that is, bursaries for many of the fields of study paid for by the companies only open up when the specific skills are needed.

On top of bursaries, South Africa’s biggest companies do also offer apprenticeships and other opportunities.

With bursaries closed for study in 2016, prospective students should apply now (where applicable) for study in 2017.

1. British American Tobacco

British American Tobacco offers bursary options for students that have an undergraduate degree or are in their final year of study in these subjects:

  • Commerce
  • Agricultural Science
  • Food Technology
  • Food Chemistry
  • Natural Science
  • Physical Chemistry
  • Public / International Relations
  • Bcom Law
  • Human Resources

The skills the group is targeting are primarily in (but not limited to) these fields:

  • Information Technology (undergrad and post-grad)
  • Industrial Engineering (undergrad and post-grad)
  • Marketing (post-grad)
  • Accounting (post-grad)

Applications usually close at the end of August each year.

2. SABMiller

SABMiller says that it is committed to helping South Africa develop its skills, and it does so by offering academic bursaries to deserving SA students.

On top of the financial support, the group says its bursars are “afforded the opportunity to learn more about the world of work”.

SABMiller offers bursaries in these areas of study:

  • Brewing
  • Packaging
  • Control and automation
  • Supply chain
  • Marketing

3. Naspers

Naspers says it is committed to developing its own employees as well as extending training outside the group to develop a “talent pipeline”.

“Given the strategic importance of technology and intellectual property to our sustainability in a competitive market, skills development is a priority for Naspers.”

The group has developed the “Naspers Academy” – which develops specific skills needed by the group (in terms of Internet engineering and classified businesses).

Externally, Media24 offers four bursaries for students wanting to complete their postgraduate qualifications in journalism at either Stellenbosch University, NWU, Wits or Rhodes University.

This is a two-year bursary programme – one year of postgraduate study and one year based at Media24.

4. Richemont

Luxury goods group Richemont doesn’t offer any paid bursaries in South Africa, but the international group offers apprenticeships and other training programs as part of its corporate social responsibility.

The group also makes donations to South African universities such as the University of Cape Town, to provide financial aid for students.

5. BHP Billiton

BHP Billiton provides qualified students with exceptional bursaries every year.

The bursaries cover full university fees (including registration), accomodation, meals, text books and pocket money.

  • Mining Engineering
  • Extractive Metallurgy
  • Electrical Engineering (Light & Heavy)
  • Mine Surveying
  • Geology

  • Chemical Engineering (Mineral Process)

Qualifying bursary students are required to sign an employment contract with the company for a period equal to the bursary term.

Bursaries close the end of May each year.

6. Steinhoff

Steinhoff does not have any external bursary or scholarship programs, but does make training and development opportunities available to employees “as far as is reasonably practical,” it says.

“The group concentrates training efforts on its existing employees and not on people outside of the group. Learning assistance through bursaries and study loans is offered in divisions with skills shortages.”

7. Glencore

Glencore Xtrata offers bursaries in the mining field, with offers of apprenticeships and recruitment schemes to build necessary job skills.

High English, Maths and Science levels are required to qualify (60-69% and 70-79%, respectively).

The following career paths will be available for study, depending on the need of the company at the time.

  • Mining Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

This scholarship has bursaries available in all fields of study, as long as it’s at any internationally-recognized university in any other country outside of South Africa.

Candidates have to return home to South Africa, work and stay in South Africa for a minimum period of five years after completing their studies.

Applications open from the beginning of January each year and close the end of February.

10. MTN

MTN offers a number of external bursaries to help boost and develop skills, especially for those coming from a previously disadvantaged background.

The MTN graduate program also looks to fill the openings within the company.

The company offers numerous bursaries across many fields, such as:

  • Human resources
  • Accounting
  • Computer science
  • Marketing
  • Technology
  • Computer engineering
  • and many others

The group specifies that while its bursaries are open to all, candidates from previously disadvantaged backgrounds will get preference.

South African mining engineering school licenses analysis software

South Africa’s Wits School of Mining Engineering has licensed decision analysis software from Palisade, to be used in the school’s mine engineering teaching programme.

Under the partnership, Wits will have licensed access to @RISK software for all staff and the 100 computers in its Mine Design Laboratory for research and analytical simulations.

Attend the Sustainability in Mining Seminar in Pretoria in June.
Attend the Sustainability in Mining Seminar in Pretoria in June.

An understanding of stochastic analysis – or probabilistic analysis – is a vital part of every mining engineer’s skill set,” said Professor Dick Minnitt, JCI Professor of Mineral Resources and Reserves at Wits.

Mines succeed on the basis of good decisions, and engineers must evaluate the uncertainties in every decision they face, before choosing the best one.
Stochastic modelling is a significant advance in thinking about the answers we get for any calculations, especially those involving variables that can take on a range of different values,” he explained.

A probabilistic approach allows you to understand a problem by observing what could happen, as a universe of possibilities – a portfolio of possibilities rather than a single magic number – which allows you to make more informed, more robust decisions.”

The approach can be applied in various aspects of mine planning – from operations to finance modelling – so that the engineer can contribute systematically to any assessment of risk and opportunity,” commented Clinton Birch, senior lecturer in the School of Mining Engineering and teacher of a course in Financial Valuation.

In 2014, Palisade trained 18 of the Wits’ staff and postgraduates in risk and probabilistic modelling and also how best to integrate such issues into the school’s teaching programme.
