Congratulations to the recipients of the #SendMeToCardiff Scholarships, Jonathan Sprague from CTI Durban campus and Kapil Doorkapersadh from CTI Pretoria campus.

Jonathan and Kapil were selected from a number of applicants to travel to the UK to pursue their postgraduate qualification at Cardiff Metropolitan University in Wales, an institution that is the *top ranked UK Univeristy for overall international student support.

The Scholarship is a once in a lifetime opportunity provided by CTI and Cardiff Met, that will allow the students to develop themselves personally, find new interests and make life-long friends. The experience will expose them to an array of different cultures and different learning environments where they will gain knowledge and skills they can then apply to the workplace when returning to South Africa, and therefore contribute towards economic growth in Africa.

“Cardiff Metropolitan University is deeply committed to supporting the education and personal development CTI offers its students. As part of this commitment, we feel it is important to provide life changing opportunities for CTI students outside of South Africa and ensure that they are accessible to all. This year sees the award of the first two fully funded Vice Chancellor’s Scholarships to study a postgraduate programme at Cardiff Metropolitan University in the UK.

We cannot wait to welcome this year’s winners of the scholarship to our Llandaff campus and support them to continued outstanding success in their fields. We know their achievements will inspire other CTI students to aim as high as possible to fulfil the dreams they have for their own lives and those of the nation.” – Jane Levy, Principal Lecturer and Head of Department at Cardiff School of Management

The #SendMeToCardiff Scholarship includes tuition, flights, travel and accommodation and will set the students well on their journey to becoming Real World Ready.

“I am so excited for the opportunity to further my studies at Cardiff Metropolitan University, and look forward  to experiencing student life in Wales. I have always found that anything worth achieving takes hard work  and  dedication and this scholarship is evidence of that.” – Jonathan Sprague

“I am extremely honoured and blessed for receiving this prestigious scholarship which boosts my confidence  and made me realise that dreams do come true. They say ‘failure is a stepping stone to success, but failure  will never overcome you, if your determination to succeed is stronger.” – Kapil Doorkapersadh.

Congratulations Jonathan and Kapil, we wish you a successful academic year and look forward to seeing your Real World Ready journey continue at Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2016.
