The IIE’s Bachelor of Commerce degree is accredited by the Council on Higher Education (CHE) and is registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) at level 7 - the same level as other equivalent undergraduate degrees at South African universities. The opportunity to apply for a postgraduate certificate/diploma or honours degree at Varsity College or any South African university exists subject to meeting specific programme entrance requirements.
Students who choose the Finance and Accounting core discipline will have a broader scope of access into postgraduate qualifications.
Varsity College is offering alumni of The IIE BCom degree the opportunity to count their IIE Bachelor’s degree toward a UK Honours degree with the Open University. The Open University (OU), United Kingdom, recognises the IIE as a degree awarding body. Specifically, The IIE BCom degree has been given a General Credit Exemption rating of up to 240 credit points of credit transfer towards The OU Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) Open degrees with Honours. The IIE BCom degree therefore provides you with a pathway towards studying a BA or BSc Open degree with Honours from the Open University.
