Studying in South Africa

Choosing a career is never easy, although it is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Choosing where to study is the second most difficult decision to make.

The following may assist you with your decisions:

  • Entry requirements: What subjects and results are required
  • Cost of studies: Loans, bursaries and scholarships available
  • Distance: Technology and online options, accommodation and travel
  • Job opportunities: Workplace, working environment, your personality

The information available below will give you some ideas of what to study, and where in South Africa you will be able to study. All of these institutions are accredited by the Department of High Education in 2019.

I hope you will find this valuable.

You are most welcome to come and discuss your options with me in room B102 during any break and directly after school or email vanheerdenc@dsjmail.co.za
