Support for the Study of Foreign Languages

The Registrar’s Division, Communications and Marketing Division and Infrastructure, Operations & Finance Division will:

  • Where feasible, annotate key documents (e.g. application forms, bursary forms etc.) by providing addenda with explanatory notes in isiXhosa and/or Afrikaans;
  • Progressively, provide multilingual signage for significant University buildings.

The Human Resources Division will be requested to:

  • Devise strategies to encourage members of the University who do not speak isiXhosa to enrol for the short communicative course in isiXhosa offered by the African Languages Studies Section of the School of Languages;
  • Ensure that advertisements for vacant positions indicate that competence in more than one official language will be a recommendation.
