Management College of Southern Africa (MANCOSA) is a private higher education institution, providing management programmes through supported distance learning in South Africa.
MANCOSA programmes promote high levels of independence through innovative learning and assessment interventions.
Students can expect a carefully integrated mix of lectures, access to well-designed self-study materials and online learning resources. MANCOSA has received accreditation for all its academic programmes, taught by highly qualified staff who remain committed to ensuring that all students succeed.
The institution allows the student to study at their own time and preferred place. Distance learning also allows the student to study and work simultaneously.
Before applying for any of the courses offered at this institution, you must ensure that you meet the specific requirements for the course of your choice.
If you would like to join MANCOSA, but do not have a matric certificate, the institution offers a 1-year Higher Certificate programme which will grant you entry to a degree upon completion, as well as bridging courses.
Bridging courses are short, focused learning programmes designed to help high school students enter higher education institutions. They are seen as introductory level courses and can range from six months to one year. These courses are also created to prepare students for the pace and standard of tertiary education.
Bridging courses can also allow you to re-write your failed subjects so that you can upgrade your matric results; the enhanced results will give you a better chance of joining a university for your higher education.
A Higher Certificate is a NQF level 5 and is usually obtainable within one year. The qualification is focused on providing students with the skills required in order to perform in their chosen field of study.
After you complete your matric at MANCOSA, you can apply to become an undergraduate student at the institution.
You can also choose to have your matric exams re-marked or choose to rewrite a few subjects through the Department of Basic Education, if you would like to improve your results.
