Graduates bag five Rhodes scholarships

07 March 2005

UCT graduates have landed five of the nine prestigious Rhodes Scholarships awarded each year to South Africans for study at Oxford University. Sindiso Mnisi, Dominique Pitot and Christopher Young were named as winners in the South-Africa-at-large category, while scholarships were also awarded to Christopher Haw and Neil Kruger. Haw, an electrical engineering graduate, intends to study bio-medical engineering at Oxford. Kruger, currently a final- year medical student, hopes to read for a degree in the science field in the UK. At Oxford, Mnisi, who completed her BA and LLB at UCT, will sign up for a Master of Studies and, later, a DPhil in socio-legal studies. In turn, Dominique Pitot, an electrical engineering graduate, has his sights set on a DPhil in computer science. Young is also completing his medical studies at UCT, and hopes to read for a DPhil in neuroscience at Oxford.
