The Three Possible Study Options
Tertiary study at a UNIVERSITY. This includes components of practical training prior to, and during, tertiary study.
Tertiary study at a UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY. This includes the component of experiential training as required by the University of Technology for the National Diploma, and/or B Tech degree.
Structured PRACTICAL training programmes. These are supplemented by in-house and/or industry training courses.
A Grade 12 academic level with a minimum of 60% achieved for Pure Mathematics, Physical Science and English is required for applicants to be considered for a bursary in Mining Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical /Metallurgical Engineering, Geology, Rock Engineering, Analytical Chemistry, Mine Surveying and Finance and Information. (Physical Science is not required for Finance and Information).
Before bursars attend University/University of Technology as a school leaver/ matriculant, they will get the opportunity to thoroughly investigate and confirm their chosen career choice, before embarking on full-time studies, by working for up to a year under professional practitioners. During this time they will receive practical experience in the work environment, exposure to tertiary study and a generous training allowance. Anglo American Platinum believes that the Exposure Year is a valuable year for its bursars and therefore compulsory for all disciplines except for Finance and Information students.
