Student Recruitment is responsible for promoting the University as a leading, comprehensive institution within the higher education sector. Our focus is to market our distinct range of programmes offered within our seven faculties and six campuses in Port Elizabeth and George.   Our primary markets are prospective students, educators and parents both locally and from a national base. Our marketers assist them in making informed decisions about study choices available at our university.

Our services include:

  • Grade 11 & 12 presentations
  • Grade 9 subject choice presentations
  • Careers exhibitions
  • Educator information sessions
  • Campus tours aimed at school learners

We aim to increase our presence on digital platforms based on how our stakeholders consume information.
