Institutions of higher education, universities offer both undergraduate and postgraduate education for students. Many students who pass Matric go on to study at one of the universities in South Africa or around the world, continuing their education. Some stop after their Bachelor's degree, while others go on to be awarded their Honours, Masters and Doctorates. Universities are an essential part of society, providing tertiary education to each new group of students and preparing them for demanding, skill-intensive jobs. Without universities, we would be without doctors, engineers and mathematicians, to name a few.
