Bursary scheme

Bursary & Experiential learning


As part of realising its vision of being an employer of choice and preparing the industry for its future resourcing needs, Lonmin offers comprehensive and industry renowned Bursaries to students who wish to pursue a career in mining or mining related disciplines such as Geology, Instrumentation, Mining Engineering, Electrical / Mechanical / Chemical Engineering and Metallurgy etc. We are also proud to announce that since 2014 we have implemented an Experiential learning programme to assist students who need to complete practical training as part of their university requirements.

Bursary scheme
The Lonmin Bursary Scheme has been established to assist potential students to attain qualifications in mining-related disciplines, thereby contributing to the general upliftment of skills and qualification levels in the mining sector.
The fully paid Bursaries (one of the best financial schemes in the industry) are offered to top performing students who wish to further their studies at accredited formal tertiary institutions.
On successful completion of their academic studies at tertiary institutions the Bursars then have the opportunity to join Lonmin as Employees with the designation “Graduates in Training”. As Graduates in Training they are required to undergo a pre-determined development programme which is outcomes-based within their relevant field. Each Graduate in Training will be assigned a Mentor for his/her guidance.
Our philosophy is to ensure that all your financial needs are met during your study term, allowing you to focus on performing at your best academically. We also want to see you grow and mature as adults, preparing you to be a key contributor in the South African mining industry.

Experiential learning
The Experiential learning programme has been introduced to assist students who need to complete practical training before obtaining their qualification. The purpose of the programme is to contribute to skills development in the mining sector.
This is a 12 month fixed-term contract with competitive remuneration rates and includes the payment of tuition fees during the formal experiential learning period. No work back commitment is applied.
The experiential learning programme is applicable to students in various disciplines.

Please note that our Bursary and Experiential applications for 2015 are not open yet. Visit our website on a regular basis for news on the application process and dates.
