As a result, graduates gain the invaluable skills they need to excel in their chosen fields. From stronger problem-solving to enhanced critical thinking, we give candidate the extra edge they need to pursue the careers & lives they’ve always dreamed of. One way we do this is through a range IIE higher certificates. These are NQF5 qualifications that open doors to bigger & better opportunities. Here’s why you might want to consider studying an IIE higher certificate at The IIE’s Varsity College.

Opens doors to diploma and degree studies later on

A definite perk that comes with higher certificate courses is that upon completion you graduate with a standalone NQF5 qualification which opens doors to employment. This also enables you to study towards a diploma or degree later on, if you wish. That’s why they are called “pathway-to-degree programmes” they give you the opportunity to pursue that Bachelor’s degree that you’ve always wanted. For this reason, many who start off with a higher certificate are able to take their education even further and enjoy a host of career opportunities.

Great option if you aren’t ready to commit to a full 3-year diploma or degree
