Change the world

School of Management Sciences


As part of the Connect 2 Your Future (C2F) programme, first year Vice-Chancellor Scholarship students attended a session on “Basic Budgeting” offered by Jackie Palframan, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Business Management, Financial Planning programmes. Jackie was invited to advise the VC Scholars on planning their finances to ensure their bursaries were used wisely.

Students admitted to the program completed a number of workshops and individual mentoring sessions to assist them with their transition into university life. In addition, the program provides academic support through academic advising and monitoring, mentoring, career and psychosocial counselling. 

The C2F programme is a joint initiative run by the Department of Student Governance and Development, Centre for Access Assessment and Research and Student Counselling, Career & Development Centre.

Jackie has been invited to speak to the first year VC Scholarship students for the past two years. Below she is pictured with the first year Vice-Chancellor Scholarship students for 2017.
