enrolling students in 2009.
The department provides a second opportunity for students unable to
continue their studies after Grade 10 or 12 to go to University after

It has been proven that students who do this, improve their grades significantly
in Grade 11 and 12 enrol for the English courses available.
DOSE also enrols
professional people who want to improve their grades in order to undertake
further studies or even just to improve in their work performance. For
example, a person who requires writing skills in his/her profession
can enrol for the English courses available.
Students who complete the DOSE modules have the same opportunities of
acceptance by tertiary institutions as all flexible education students
nationwide. Six DOSE students were accepted for tertiary studies under
the University’s main academic programs last year; while this
year, 18 students will be enrolled.
The department is presently based at UNRE Vudal; however, DOSE will
eventually be based at Kerevat. This is to ensure that the program is
accessible to all members of the community.
Land for this project has been identified and while verbal approval
has been granted by provincial authorities for its use, proper documentation
is yet to be received despite several follow-up visits.
