Higher Education

Higher Education, a near-essential part of life. Referring to any studying done after Matric, higher education provides students with additional qualifications necessary to obtain specific jobs and advance themselves in life. Options for higher education include universities and colleges, offering qualifications on degree, diploma and certificate levels. Which of these levels of higher education you qualify to go into depends upon your Matric pass - it takes a Bachelor's pass to qualify to study for a degree, a Diploma pass for a diploma and a Higher Certificate pass for a certificate.
