I am a current student at University of Cape town not yet registered due to lack of funds and that there are no financial aid for my course since its a conversion programme, The Postgraduate Diploma in Management (Actuarial Conversion Course now to be called Advanced Diploma) is an intensive programme designed to provide high calibre graduates from other disciplines an accelerated entry into an Actuarial Science career.
The course is run over 1 or 2 years depending how many subjects the student needs to complete, which will depend on how many actuarial subjects or exemptions they already have from another degree, or from ASSA. A student completing the Conversion Course will be able to attain exemptions equivalent to those of a student who has completed a BCom Actuarial Science, and may apply to do Actuarial Science Honours. , I am currently financially excluded to continue with my studies.
Sometimes all Doors maybe closed for me but i remembered they are not locked so this is why i created this Campaign. I have observed that within me there is the power to rise above any situation or struggle and transform into the Brightest, Strongest version of me than ever. I never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of my success will be how I treat other people.
The reason why I think I deserve the fund it's because I need to further my studies in Actuarial sciences so that I will manage to being a professional actuary , learning what's taught, mastering it, and also inquiring into unanswered questions and under-explored areas and going going to add value to the Economy of South Africa .I will appreciate the chance I'm being given and will continue to respect the reason it was given, to help others achieve their potential and contribute to society and to the company too. If I'm able to, I'll take that on as part of my purpose as well, to make this award even more powerful in society. I believe in being a contribution, so I'll also be a contribution to my fellow students that I tutored and the faculty, helping make your contributions to others more successful.
