Where Students Must Collect Their TVET College Certificates


Once a student graduates with a tertiary education qualification, they receive a certificate which indicates their achievement. However, students at some colleges have not received these crucial certificates.



Students studying at Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges are advised to collect their certificates at the colleges where they completed their examinations.

This comes after students laid complaints concerning the non-issuing of their certificates with the higher education department.

Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande said students should contact their colleges for their results when they have met the requirements to obtain their certification.

The department however nullified the results of 2,028 candidates due to irregularities. Further action is now being taken to deal with this.

“Accordingly, the implicated students will be allowed to register to write the end of the year examinations and if implicated again, they will be suspended for a period of three years from participating in future examinations,” Nzimande said.

The minister revealed 39,777 candidates’ results have been released and that 99,94% of certificates for the previous certification backlog (historical records) have been released to colleges for qualifying students.

Nzimande added that once their results are recorded by the department, all certificates will be released to the colleges for students within 90 days of the release of their results.

The minister said, “Students who write examinations over multiple examinations to qualify for certification are expected to apply for the combination of their results at the last examination centre where they wrote their examination.”

Colleges are urged not to withhold certificates due to unpaid fees. The minister said they must attempt to find a workable solution to recover fees.
