We have started with a series of Student Stories.

University pass rates for rural youth are generally very poor - annual pass rates as low as 35% are the norm. However, in our programme, where all students come form rural areas, and are studying health science degrees, we achieved a 94% pass in 2013!
In addition 75% of our 48 graduates who completed their degrees last year, did so in the minimum time – the rest needed only one additional year!
