As part of International Week, which started off with a vibrant parade hosted by the Rhodes University International Office, an inaugural Internationalisation Summit was held on 19 May.

The university course that changed everything

Tanatswa Chivhere, second-year Law and Journalism major at Rhodes University, signed up for the IiNtetho zoBomi course after her friend told her that it was relatively easy. She shares her journey with us.



This unique and very sought-after multicultural event creates a space for the Rhodes University community, both staff and students, to celebrate Africa Day. The rich cultural experience gives individuals the opportunity to dress in the formal attire of their choosing, displaying the rich diversity of the Rhodes University community. Both music and cuisine from all around the African continent is celebrated and enjoyed during this vibrant cultural event.



The Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Community Engagement Award is a prestigious and competitive annual award which recognises meaningful and committed partnerships between the members of the university and community partners in the areas of teaching, learning and research, where human and material resources of the University have been combined with assets found in local communities in order to contribute to sustainable human and community development.
