Programme managers are a direct liaison between the student and the Thuthuka team. Students are funded in groups which is managed by these programme managers. Through this, students are then assisted on the ground.

This bursary fund looks to increase the number of African and Coloured CAs in the country. They want to make sure that SAICA's presence is felt within the University space and that more students know about the CA profession. 

Moephudi said, "For every year that a student continues to pass while being on the Thuthuka programme, they continue to get funded".

SAICA stands for the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants and was founded in 1980. They are the foremost Accountancy body in the country and is the professional home for CAs.
