Bentil added that as the university grows it will accommodate 3,000 students and later 6,000 students and intakes will be done thrice in a year.  He said that is international practice for universities worldwide.

Bentil said that the commencement of the construction phase of the project and the unveiling of the logo are expected sometime this month. He said the positions of deputy vice chancellors, deans, directors and other staff would soon be advertised both locally and internationally.

He said that Rotarians could assist in sitting on BIUST Council, advisory boards, as guest speakers or lecturers. He added that they could also assist students with scholarships and internship opportunities.

BIUST is located in Palapye, 277km north of Gaborone in a 2,500hectare plot. When BIUST was launched in December 2006, it was anticipated that the first intake of students would be in August this year.
