List of colleges in South Africa

Are you looking for a list of colleges in South Africa?  Here is the top 5 that we recommend:

It is a well documented fact that improving your qualifications improves you ability to earn a higher salary.  The higher your qualification, and the more years you have studied, the higher the trend is for income.

In South Africa, nearly 80 percent of students believe that their qualifications have prepared them to enter the workforce. Students expressed almost equally high confidence levels about job opportunities following graduation.  Studies means opportunities.  A job.  And a career!

What if I cant get into University after school?

However, there is not enough spaces at University level to take the number of students applying.  At least 80% of students that apply to university do not get a space. And many young people leave school without achieving the bachelor pass required to university. Some students do not pass matric at all.

This does not mean you cannot study further.  In this instance you should consider a college, rather than a university.

Many college qualifications give you access to a degree further down the road too.  So starting out your studies in a college is a solid way to take your education further.

Can I study at a college if I dont have matric?

Yes you can!  There are accredited qualifications, such as the ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers) qualifications, or CIMA qualifications.  Neither of these require you to have a matric to get started.List of Colleges in South Africa

List of distance learning colleges

Many students in South Africa do not come from a financial background that allows their parents to pay for their studies.  This means that often you need to study and work at the same time.

Working and studying at the same time also gives you the work experience to land the perfect job once you have completed your studies.  This gives you a distinct advantage over students who are looking for their first job after their 4 years of studies of further studies!

Here is a short list of highly recommended private distance learning colleges
