Lyceum’s Standard Demonstrated through its Alumni

By Nana Zuke 

“The college itself is practicing on a high level. The communication, the correspondence and assistance was always of top notch,” said Vereesh Shewnarian, a former Lyceum student.

Vereesh studied a Diploma in Metropolitan and Traffic Policing and an Advanced Diploma in Metropolitan and Traffic Policing. It is the quality standard that Lyceum offered that made him keep pursuing his studies with the college.

He is currently a Manager in a Traffic Law Enforcement environment at the KZN Department of Transport. He chose to do that specific course because it was related to his occupation. It is also a profession he has always been passionate about.

The tools he acquired at Lyceum assisted him to ensure the smooth operation of the station, running projects from within the organisation he works for. His studies with Lyceum helped him become proactive and strategic in the way he functions in the work-place.

“I have employed various methods, utilising both the Departments procedures in conjunction with what I studied with Lyceum to ensure results and consistency,” said Vereesh.

The highlight for Vereesh to date has been receiving his National Diploma and getting recognition from the Institution of Transport and Municipal Officers of Southern Africa at their conference in 2016. In addition to achieving his Degree with top status at his age.

“This was such an overwhelming achievement for me since I had finished my matric over 2 decades ago. It is never too late study in pursuit of your dream,” said Vereesh.

What is most memorable about his time of study at Lyceum, was the lecturer’s assistance. They were always dedicated to help me with whatever challenges I faced. In addition, the availability of past question papers and the scope they were given to study with during exam season made studying much more productive.

According to Vereesh, student support was always professional as the student consultants were always ready to meet the expectation of the students.  This afforded the students the chance to achieve top results every time.

Vereesh is currently studying a Post Graduate Diploma in Traffic Policing at Lyceum. By furthering his studies he hopes to go the extra mile in coaching and mentoring his junior staff with the additional skills he will acquire.  His goal now is to be in top management of Traffic Safety and be part of the fight against road carnage in the country.

Lyceum is committed to providing quality education and the best resources that advance students in their studies and professional fields. To find out more visit
