Owen Chingoboo, 2004

“I would like to emphasize that by being a recipient of the Baring Scholarship, I have gained in many ways. Academically, my geological knowledge has vastly improved owing to the great depth and breadth of the course content, excellent teaching facilities and staff, and the numerous visits that were made to various mines and mineral occurrences. In addition, have also improved on my communication, inter-personal and social skills owing to the cosmopolitan nature of Rhodes University students’ enrolment. Last but not least, I have managed to secure employment with one of the world’s largest mining and exploration companies. I am very grateful and please keep it up.”
