Giving back to UNIZULU

As an institution of higher learning, UNIZULU has a responsibility to provide quality education in an environment that is conducive to teaching and learning. Our institution is committed to ensuring students from disadvantaged backgrounds have access to tertiary education in conjunction with infrastructure that will advance their social and recreational development. However, due to the increased demand for access to higher education and limited resources, UNIZULU has embarked on projects to generate third stream income to facilitate institutional projects. To ensure the success of these projects, we require your professional expertise and support.


There are a number of ways you can assist, including


  •     Enrolling our undergraduates into your corporate internship programme.
  •     Recruiting our students to provide support.
  •     Participate in in-service training opportunities during vacation periods.
