Universtity offers to pay half the fees for self-sponsored students
Limkokwing University has made a commitment to pay meet self-sponsored students halfway by offering them up to 50 percent sponsorship.
This was revealed this week when the university hosted a two-day Private Students Parents Engagement Session.
The sessions were aimed at getting parents of prospective students who failed to make the government cut off point for sponsorship under one roof with the University management, bursary as well as faculty specialists.
The session’s aim was to share various flexible payments methods available; programs that will be running in 2019, as well as to unveil the 50 percent scholarships the University will be offering 1st year self-sponsored students for the new academic year.
Speaking at the session Associate Director Registry, Beenzu Kapapa stated that Limkokwing is committed to increasing access to tertiary for the youth of this country and as a result the Founder President Tan Sri Limkokwing found it fitting to give out scholarships to selected groups of potential students who were unable to get government sponsorships.

In the past, the university has offered scholarships to people living with disability as well as some members of the media.
The institution’s Finance Manager, Lenah Kelepile added that the 50 percent scholarships as well as the flexible payment structure they have in place are the University’s efforts of encouraging Batswana and individual private sponsors to pay for the education of their children at tertiary level.
She highlighted that while the 50 percent scholarship will be given to first year qualifying students were unable to get government sponsorship and 30 percent discount will be given to all self-sponsored students who pay for annual tuition fees or full studies fees upfront.
