Q+A WITH LUYANDA BHEYILE,
Manager of Alumni Relations at Rhodes University.
How is Rhodes handling and prioritizing the growing
number of financial aid requests from students?
Sound academic performance
Proven financial need
Willingness to make a minimal financial commitment to the University to pay fees
Mostly South African citizens
Signing of the acknowledgement of debt in instances where the family is unable
to settle fees in full by the end of the academic year. This is done to ensure that
academically sound students are permitted to progress to the next academic
level so that the University is able to collect the funds once they have graduated
and secured permanent employment.
