Universities

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. Look below for news relating to universities, fees and registration, as well as the challenges facing tertiary education in South Africa.

Companies are increasingly appointing Hospitality Management graduates to senior positions outside of their ‘traditional’ roles, because of the tremendous breadth of transferable skills gained during their studies and practical training - particularly their ability to interface effectively with the public and handle diverse crises.
