Department of Communication Science tour to Asia

A group of 18 students from the Department of Communication Science will be leaving the African continent soon for a tour to Asia. The students, who will share this experience with some of their lecturers, will be visiting Thailand and Singapore.

Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, will be the first pit stop. The tour will not only be fun and leisure, however, as the students will be attending classes at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

Mrs Van der Walt, a lecturer in the Department of Communication Science, will be among the lecturers who will accompany the students. She believes that tours of this nature are important, because people who are in the communication and media industry should not live in a South African box. “They need to think internationally because we are competing internationally,” she adds.
