Marketing and Communications
The Department of Marketing and Communication provides a range of services to prospective students, current students and staff. These include client liaison (student marketing), recruiting of students, events coordination, brand management, corporate identity (CID), reputation management, internal and external communication, publicity and public relations.
We are involved in various events where student marketing takes place. The department is the sponsor of various sporting events, including athletics series in the North-West, the Southern Cape and Gauteng. The University also presents three sports series, namely the Prestige series, the Interprovincial series and the Puk 16 for rugby, netball and hockey for small, medium and large schools.
The annual Open Day has been an event on every matriculant’s calendar for years and is an event not to be missed. Various other days where faculties market their specific courses, like Accountancy, Engineering and Business Mathematics and Informatics, are also presented.

Liaison with schools
The campus has eight student recruiters who organise various contact sessions at selected schools every year in order to recruit students. This recruitment takes place in collaboration with the faculties and schools and is aimed at recruiting the best students for the University.
Special efforts are made to pursue diversity by recruiting students from all interest groups in the country.
