Would it be possible to study further to obtain a postgraduate qualification once I have
completed The IIE BCom (Economics) degree?
The IIE BCom in Economics degree is accredited by the South African Council on Higher
Education and registered on the South African 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 any South African university exists subject to specific programme entrance
As a registered student at Varsity College, we will support you to explore the possible
postgraduate options that align to your chosen career area. Each year we also provide our
students with a postgraduate information pack. It is important to remember that your
academic results remain a key factor when applying for further studies.
