Longitudinal research by the unit for Higher Education Research and Innovation (HERI) into first-year dropout from the University of Pretoria has consistently identified wrong course choice as the primary cause. Thanks to the Siyaphumelela grant from the Kresge Foundation, the University has been able to commission the development of a smart phone application that can be used from Grade 10 at school to first-year at university. The app helps learners to identify their preferences and strengths and links the profile to suitable careers. The careers then link to specific degree programmes within the University of Pretoria.

The app was developed by third year students form the Department of Informatics at the University of Pretoria. The project is managed by Dr Juan-Claude Lemmens and supported by Mr Moses Kebalepile and staff from UP. The app will be launched in October 2015 and implemented in targeted schools in 2016. The app will be made available to the other participating Siyaphumelela universities and they will be able to particularize it to their programmes. It can later be made available to all universities.
