The Covid-19 pandemic disrupted many aspects of what was considered normal, including the way children attended school. One South African university embraced this new normal and will now offer an online high school programme for students around the country and the world.

The University of Cape Town (UCT) launched their Online High School in 2022 to offer an alternative to the traditional school system in South Africa. The school will provide learners with quality education that is affordable.

UCT’s online school offers the CAPS that is used by public schools in South Africa as well as the Cambridge International curriculum. This will allow students to obtain either their National Senior Certificate or a similar qualification.

Director and principal of UCT Online High School Yandiswa Xhakaza says they received interest form many parents, including those outside South Africa regarding the Cambridge International curriculum.

Xhakaza says learners who complete the Cambridge International curriculum will obtain an International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). This qualification is equivalent to a year 10 and 11 of their school life. The tuition for the online high school is currently R3,300 per month.

Once this is completed, the learners will then need to complete a Cambridge advanced which will lead them to A-levels where a learner typically graduates in three specialised subjects at the age of 19 and can apply for a university qualification.
