Don’t Trust Your Insurance Awareness Campaign

The goal of this awareness campaign is to fight for the rights of consumers against unfair practices of some Life and Disability Insurance companies.

I recommend that you take a long hard look at the small print of your Disability and Life Insurance cover and also that of your parents.  Pay special attention to the Severe Illnesses that your insurance will not cover and the limitation to your Physical Impairment Benefits.

Varsity Homes Accommodation

Varsity Homes provides quality student accommodation in three homes situated on the doorstep of the University of Kwazulu-Natal Pietermaritzburg campus. Both local and international students welcome in our homes. The primary goal for students is to leave the university with a graduation cap on their head and a scroll in their hand.
