Study and Training


In May 2015, the Services SETA (SSETA) partnered with SAPOA to sponsor 100 students with bursaries for a 4 year degree in property related studies. With this opportunity, we wish to address the skills shortages in commercial property nationally.

The bursary opportunity is aimed at current first year students. With funding still available, SAPOA needs students to meet the criteria below:

1. Applicants must be first year under graduates in 2016 only – as per the contract, the Services SETA (SSETA) will not allow SAPOA to recruit and/or additional students beyond 2016.

2. The bursary will be for full time studies and only the degrees that fall within the scope of the Services SETA (SSETA) will be funded. These are:

– ND Real Estate: Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
– BSc Property Studies: University of the Witwatersrand and the University of Cape Town.
– BSc Real Estate: University of Pretoria.
– BSc Property Development: University of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
– BCom Finance with Property Valuation and Management as a Major: University of Johannesburg.

3. Bursaries will be allocated to financially needy students.

4. Students must comply with the entry requirements set by the universities and must have proof of registration or acceptance to said university.

Students who meet the above criteria can complete the application form and include the applicants certified copy of their ID, matric certificate and university acceptance letter.
