Meet Tracy van Turha | Notable Achiever

2 minutes   |  BUSINESS & MANAGEMENT, SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY

In recognition of students who stand out from the crowd, GetSmarter’s Notable Achievers campaign highlights a top-performing student each week.

Tracy was chosen by our Student Success Team for the passion she exudes for her University of Cape Town IT Management online short course and for the way she continues to apply the things she has learnt in her day-to-day activities.

Here’s what she had to say about her experience:

How are you enjoying the course so far?

I have to admit that I have been pleasantly surprised by the online learning environment. I was very skeptical before the course started, as I was not sure if I would be motivated enough to put in the hours on my own, however the course is very relevant. It is exactly what I need to know and understand in my everyday activities. It’s like GetSmarter tailor-made the course for me. But keep in mind that it is also very challenging and there is lots of work to cover every week.

Why did you decide to take the UCT IT Management online short course with GetSmarter?

My supervisor nominated me for this course.

How do you plan to use the skills you learn on this course in your career?

I don’t need to plan at all as I have already been able to apply the concepts and skills I learned from the very first week. I understand my work much better now. Because of this I can truly say that the course is making a difference to me.

What does it mean to you to earn a UCT certificate?

It means a lot to me because UCT is, after all, the top university on our continent.

Will you be displaying your certificate?

I most definitely will be hanging it up in my office for all to see.
