Government must subsidize students who do not have the means to pay. This means that these students need to obtain marks of +80% in matric for first years. These are the guys that will drive the economy.

Private companies should make more bursaries available to students who want to study in fields related to their business.

Student loans should given to all students who’s parents earn below a certain threshold for the first year. For students to uphold the loan agreement, students need to obtain marks of +70%.

Fees must not fall. Neither should our level of education. Instead, building a bridge between government and the tertiary institutions where the two can meet financially, would greatly benefit all. Even the economy.

FET training colleges should be free of charge. The level of education compared to university is kilometers apart. If fees fall, our level of education and our level of thinking will follow.
