Matriculants heading for their first year at university in 2022 now have a golden period ahead of them, in which they can take the steps that will ensure they make a success not just of their first year, but which will allow them to lay the groundwork for a productive and fulfilling career after graduation.

Graduate

College students are often under the impression that they’ll get a well-paying job as soon as they graduate from college. Unfortunately, with South Africa’s current unemployment rate, finding a job that soon after completing their studies remains a pipe dream for most. Some graduates are fortunate enough to find work in their field of interest soon after graduation, while others spend months looking for work; some are even willing to accept an unpaid internship to gain experience.

Prospective students considering a law degree often have visions of black robes and courtroom battles in their post-graduation future. However in South Africa, the legal practice environment has in recent years seen a movement towards more non-litigious, non-adversarial methods of dispute resolution, which means that those who were hesitant to pursue a legal qualification because of what appears like a prohibitively intimidating environment, now have cause to reconsider.
