On 7 August 2018, The Embassy of France with the International office of the Durban University of Technology hosted French day at Fred Crookes Sport centre.

The event was not only about celebrating French culture, hundreds of DUT students got a chance to learn about study programmes and scholarship opportunities offered in France.

Local students engaged with members of Alliance Francaise of Durban (AFD), Campus France, P’SAGRI and P’SATI.

Former DUT B’Tech graduate in Industrial Engineering, Bongumenzi Mncwango said other than the studies where he had to put more effort, he also got to travel a lot.

Mncwango got a chance to study in France following his application for the Scholarship Embassy in 2013. He was one of the 27 students that were selected out of the one thousands applications. He went abroad to do his Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering.

He urged other students that are interested to study abroad to kindly apply.

“It’s quite an easy process because they don’t ask for all these letters from the supervisors,” he said.

Member of AFD, Maeva said it is important for South Africans to go for such initiatives.

“It is important to explore other people’s culture for your personal and professional life,” she said.

She said the France government helps a lot in terms of scholarships.

As usually, RadioDUT was there and we couldn’t just have all the fun without sharing it.
