Our commitment to social promise

Red & Yellow’s reputation as a Creative School of Business is strongly underpinned by their commitment to a social promise, which ensures that at least 10% of all students have bursaries for full-time studies at our Cape Town campus. 2019 boasted a glowing 15% of students who are supported by bursaries and this number was even higher in 2020.

Bursaries are for programmes including a 3-year BA Degree in Visual Communication, a 3-year BCom Degree in Marketing, a 1-year Advanced Diploma in Marketing and Advertising Communications, a 1-year Advanced Diploma in User Centered Design, a 2-year online part-time Advanced Diploma in Digital Marketing and two 1-year Certificate programmes (Creating Digital Content or Graphic Design).

Red & Yellow’s bursary offering is available only to South African citizens and allows a broad range of students to apply regardless of their background or circumstances. “This bursary has given me the opportunity to choose where I’m going – it’s helped me see opportunities I previously would have missed,” said a 2018 bursary student.

A tribute to the incredible people

Our scholarships pay tribute to the incredible people who’ve played a key role in developing our school, producing incredible Alumni that have gone on to become business leaders and shape-shifters around the world.

What is the difference between scholarships and bursaries?

Bursaries are awarded to talented students who don’t have the financial means to study further. (We’re proud to say that in both 2018 and 2019, we surpassed our social promise goal of 10%.) Whereas scholarships are based on merit, talent and outstanding achievements only. Our chance to help bright, keenly ambitious and super-talented young humans realise their full career potential.

How does our scholarship work?

Scholarships towards tuition fees will be granted on an annual basis for up to up 5 students, based on:

  • Excellent grades
  • Evidence of natural talent and specific attributes (outlined below)
  • Alignment with the values that define us, guide us and keep our school – and our students – one step ahead.
  • A burning ambition for a career with purpose, which starts with learning the skills that’ll help them shape the world in the 21st Century
