A: If I had to choose 1 accomplishment that I am most proud of being part of eta, it would be seeing students and graduates making a great success of their lives using the tools and knowledge they obtained from being at eta knowing that you made it possible. It is something I can never get used to and each time I here of graduates “making it big” in the industry I feel a sense of great accomplishment. Obviously, none of this would be possible without an amazing team and industry expert staff we have at eta Bloemfontein.

Q: What’s your favourite qualification at eta?
A: I don’t have a favourite qualification to be honest.
A: I feel that a student that studies any one of our qualifications gets a first class seat with first class treatment and as long as the student puts in the hard yards, they are going to love what they do because our courses are amazing.
Q: Where do you hope to see eta Bloem in 5 years?
A: I am a firm believer that eta Bloem will be the campus that has the highest pass rates, highest employment rates for graduates and the campus that students come to from all over the country to achieve the best study experience possible.
