The Director of Communications and Recruitment at Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, Mercy Thebe says her University registered over 2,100 applications from the 2018 Botswana Human Resource Development Skills and Career Fair (BHRDS) in both Gaborone and Francistown.

According to Thebe, they registered over 300 applications from the Francistown fair that took place earlier and 1, 800 applications from the just ended Gaborone BHRDS Fair, saying “this response is very impressive”.

Their efforts saw them being awarded the best local private university. “This is a testament that Limkokwing University of Creative Technology takes tertiary education business in Botswana very seriously and believes in excellence in whatever endeavour it undertakes,” she highlighted.

The University has won several awards from the BHRDS Fair since its inception. “The awards humble us as an institution and are great honours looking at the fact that they are awarded by the highest tertiary education regulatory body in the country being the Human Resource Development Council,” Thebe said.

Thebe, who is also a Limkokwing University alumni, noted that the BHRDS Fair is very important to the operations of tertiaries. “It stimulates quality education amongst tertiary education providers in ensuring that institutions adhere to delivering quality education in Botswana. It also gives us as institutions a chance to advise prospective students about the programmes we offer.”

Limkokwing University has been part of the fair since 2009. “In continuing to position ourselves as the number one market leader in the creative and innovative driven tertiary education in Botswana, we brought to the 2018 BHRDS Fair, a state of the art, futuristic one-stop stall that showcases our creativity,” said Thebe.

Limkokwing University is an international university with a global presence across three continents. It has over 30,000 students coming from more than 150 countries.
