What to look for when choosing a tertiary institution in South Africa

When it comes to choosing colleges in South Africa, there is more than enough variety! However, it pays to do a little research before you decide which one is right for you. Here’s what you should be taking into consideration…

Reputation and accreditation

Varsity College is an educational brand of The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE) (PTY) (LTD), the largest, most accredited private higher education provider in the country. We also have established academic partnerships with international institutions such as The Open University (The OU) of the United Kingdom and The International College of Hotel Management (ICHM) of Australia.

A good balance between studies/sports/social life and community outreach

Whilst education is vital, an effective balance between studies, sports, outreach activities, and social events is the key to a happy and healthy student life. Varsity College has come to embody this, offering each and every student a place to belong and excel within the VC family.

Great programme offerings

When choosing colleges in South Africa, you should ideally select one that offers you a wide range of programmes as well as the programme you are interested in pursuing. A good selection of qualifications on offer means that the tertiary institution is large enough to cater for a host of student interests, keeping education and career success a top priority for all who study there. At The IIE Varsity College, you can choose from a range of qualifications across several schools of study to give our students a choice when it comes to their futures.

Alumni that really shine

A good indication of a successful tertiary institution is the success of their Alumni. At The IIE Varsity College, we’ve kept in contact with our past students and found that they’ve really excelled in their chosen industries. For more on our Alumni, please click here.
