Exxaro Bursary (2020-2021)

The Exxaro bursary includes registration fees, tuition fees, computer fees, book fees, housing, and meal fees as well as extracurricular fees. The Exxaro bursary does not, however, provide for travel to the University from home or the other way round. This should, however, not prevent anyone from applying for a bursary as the other benefits are comprehensive.

Exxaro is a top 40 JSE constituent and a South Africa founded Mining group. They offer Matriculated South Africans the opportunity to obtain a degree or diploma in the mining industry.

They will ensure vacation work as prescribed by the Institution of Study for In-Training experience and also provide you with a brilliant career. They specialize in Coal, Base Metals, Ferro-alloys, Mineral Sands, and Iron. Exxaro has mining operations throughout the world with the Africa continent, Asia, and Australia is the largest countries of concern. The mining industry is bursting at the seams and many opportunities are arising daily. If you really want to study in this line but are unable to do so due to financial strain then these bursaries are ideal. If you have a constant drive and passion in this line of education you should apply.

Exxaro Bursaries Closing Date

This bursary program usually opens every year with the start of February and closes for applications 29th March.

The bursaries available for students interested in these directions are very comprehensive and Exxaro still has the right to limit which fields will be available each year as is needed.

They assist underprivileged students and students with little financial assistance to grow. Exxaro expects the approved candidates to sign an offer of employment before studies commence for a period of time suitable to repay the bursary costs.
