  • Mercy Nqandeka
    FRENCH GOVERNMENT BURSARY HOLDER 2017/2018 Masters in Climate Change

    “My name is Mercy Nqandeka and I am from Elliotdale (Xhora), Eastern Cape. I went to University of Fort Hare where I did a BSc degree in Crop and Soil Science, and BSc Honours and Master’s degrees in Soil Science. During my postgraduate studies I worked with Prof Isaiah Wakindiki (Honours) and Dr Johan van Tol (Master’s), who have added a great value to my academic life. I have been in France since June 28th. I have enrolled in M2 programme in Agriculture, Climate Change and Transitions (ACT). The programme gives an opportunity for students to study in two different European countries. I have already done M1 in Climate Change and Food Security (CCAFS) at the National University of Ireland. I received the scholarship through F'SAGRI from the University of Fort Hare. Thanks to Dr Catherine Constant, Dr Laurence Mioche and Prof. Voster Muchenge, who introduced the scholarship to me and tirelessly helped me throughout the application process. I have had a smooth preparation for my journey to France, special thanks to Narine and Jannike (Campus France officers). My arrival was also seamless, thanks to Gisele Andre who picked me from the airport and made sure that I had a residence. I did a two-week French course and I'm now having my farm internship at St Chanion (where I'm learning about organic farming and learning French at the same time). It wouldn't be a success without help of Didier Pillot, Sophie Jean and Olga Collin. I am planning to continue with my studies and obtain a PhD (preferably a collaboration between a South African university and a French university).” Mercy and her friend Avuyile Xabadiya have recently written a review paper on the heating issue of land reform that has been selected and published by HuffPost.

  • Khangelani Zila Mbekela
    French Embassy Scholarship holder 2016/2017

    My name is Khangelani Zila Mbekela but my mates call me Chester, I am originally from Mthatha but I grew up in Pretoria Gauteng. I studied a Bcom degree in Marketing at UNISA and the post graduate studies in France was a Masters1 in International Management at the Toulouse school of management. I was drawn to France to pursue my studies because France is a first world country - I therefore knew that the university would have good facilities and resources. The study programmes in France are also highly affordable due to the financial investment made by the French governement. I also appreciated the French education system because they integrate the theoretical part of the studies with the practical part by making internships mandatory for us as students during holidays. This helps students apply the knowledge and gives them work experience. I also enjoyed learning about other nationalities since the course I followed was an international course. I was also drawn to the social factors of France such as the French culture, food, language, rich history along with beautiful architecture and of course their sport! I was fortunate enough to experience playing semi professional rugby for the Town team Toulouse Olympics Rugby. The two main difference between my life in SA and France were the effecient public transport I used in France (instead of driving my own car) and also fast and easily accessible internet. I would advice future South African students to do thourough research on their desired program to make sure that what they plan to study is aligned with their career goals. I also think it would be beneficial to learn a little bit of French before going France for about 6-12 months as preparation. This opportunity has allowed me to go into business Strategy consulting for start up companies. I am also considering in working in academia in pursuit of my PhD and therefore found the opportunity to study in France beneficial for my career.
