6 South African students join PCTE

Under an agreement signed between the Limpopo Province of South Africa and Punjab Technical University (PTU) earlier this year, six students from the South African province have joined the Punjab College of Technical Education (PCTE) in the current session.

Four students, Machethe Prischilla, Magongoa Koketjo, Minisi and Ramabulana Lufuno Moses, have taken admissions to BCA, Fakir Farzana has joined MBA and Lewane Ramatsobane Salmania has taken admission to BBA. The students joined the college on July 15 while the classes would commence from August 1. Meanwhile, these students are being imparted some fundamental lessons in computers.

Stating this at a press conference, Dr K.N.S. Kang, Director, PCTE, said according to the agreement, the students would be getting a fee-waiver by the college while their lodging and food would be paid for by the South African Government. He said the concept behind signing the agreement was a student-exchange programme between the two countries for sharing knowledge and academic excellence. He said from next year, students from his college would also be sent to South Africa.

Talking to mediapersons, the students said the process of screening had been tough. They said there was an advertisement in some national papers there and nearly 2,000 students from South Africa had applied for getting admission to various courses in the PCTE. Screening of resumes was followed by interviews and 20 students were short-listed, subsequently, they said. Finally, on the basis of merit and work experience, they were the six lucky ones who could make it to India.

The students said they were interested in coming here as they knew that their education, stay as well as travel would be free of cost. Secondly, they had heard a lot about computer education in India. They said they knew that some of the best IT professionals in the world were Indians.

The students said before sending them out to India, their government had told them to sign a bond under which they would have to work for their government for as many years as their education in India would last. The BCA and BBA students would work for their government for three years while one MBA student would serve for two years. Since the South African government did not pay much, the students said they would opt for private jobs later as these were well-paid and the demand for IT professionals was quite high there.

One of the students, Fakir Farzana, said her fifth generation ancestors were residing in Gujarat and her mother had visited the country once. She said this was her first visit to the country and during her sojourn here, she would like go to Gujarat and meet one of her distant relatives there. Another student, Lufuno Moses, said he was a good dancer and would like to participate in the cultural activities in the college.

Having spent almost two days in the city, all the students said they were quite comfortable here now. They said they were satisfied with the food, lodging and the environment. They said they had even gone out to watch the latest movie “Qayamat” at a local theatre and visited a few shopping centres here.
