I believe Students deserve some Credit when they work hard for it, see what I did there? Education is truly the future; it opens a whole new world of possibilities. Education teaches you to step out of your comfort zone – and let success in. It teaches you not to occupy your own space when it can be occupied by your own success – In order to let things in, you have to step out, but even when you do, it will remain your territory.
Absa gives you some Credit and it should well be appreciated as you build your profile and prepare you for a better future with the Student Credit Card – as you also learn how to manage your money along the way. If you get an allowance of R800 or more per month, you can apply for the Student Credit Card with Absa.
However, you have to be a full-time student at any university in South Africa, any FET College, University of Technology or a private tertiary institution like Belgium Campus in Pretoria, an IT varsity institution. You may compare it with Flexi Core Credit Card by Absa and suggest it for postgraduates who started working and earning R2000 or above.
