Multichoice is Offering Bursaries for IT-Engineering and Media

Are you studying engineering, IT or interactive media? Take advantage of this opportunity to be part of a top ICT company. If being at the forefront of cutting edge, ever-advancing technologies is your dream, The MultiChoice Bursary Programme can make that dream a reality.

South Africa’s leading satellite TV company, MultiChoice, is inviting applications for its 2017 Bursary Programme. Bursaries are awarded in accordance with the business need which changes every year,

The bursary programme came into existence because we believe strongly in education and skills development. MultiChoice helps candidates within a wide field of study by paying for accommodation, meals and textbooks. We also contribute a monthly stipend – over-and-above covering almost all of the study fees. Bursaries will only be awarded to students who will be studying full time.

In addition to this financial aid, we give selected bursary candidates the chance to work with us during their June school holidays. This gives them a better understanding of the business world and compliments the theoretical knowledge they’re getting.

  • Computer Science (– BSc IT)
  • Computer Engineering
