Study in South Africa

A guide for international students


South Africa has a large higher education system comprising 21 universities, l5 Technikons (Universities of Technology), 50 Teachers Training Colleges and scores of Agricultural and Nursing Colleges. There's also a growing private Tertiary sector, whose institutions range from Colleges to Universities. The country's research output generated by 12 500 full time academics and a similar number of research working for research councils, institutes and companies, is the biggest in Africa - thus competing with  the best in many developed countries.





South Africa is a fascinating place to study. Developing country challenges and the evolving juxtaposition of traditional and modem provide a strong higher education sector with many research opportunities.
