Welcome | Isibingelelo

Welcome to the website of the University of KwaZulu-Natal UK Trust (formerly the University of Natal UK Trust), a UK-based charity providing bursaries for needy students at the University in South Africa since 1991. The Trust celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

The objects of the Trust are: “To support and advance at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the education of people in need so far as the same is charitable by the law of England.”

The Trust has given financial help to more than 350 students with low family incomes through its bursaries and other funding over the years. This assistance plays an important role in helping sustain students from low-income families through their studies.

Please see the students’ tributes on this site for an indication of the importance of the Trust’s help to them and the depth of their gratitude to donors for supporting them. Despite greater support from the state to cover tuition fees, the need remains very great.

The Trust depends on donations from supporters, many of them alumni living in the UK, to fund its help. Please give as generously as you can.

Thank you.

Roger Smith, Chair
