List of Registered Colleges in South Africa

South African colleges are vetted by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), backed legally by the Continuing Education and Training Act of 2006. Failure to register with this particular body renders the college illegal; thus, any certificate acquired from the said college is null and void. To save students the heartbreak of going through an unaccredited college, we have compiled a list of colleges that have been certified by the DHET.

Colleges are known for offering quality and specialized training to students and generally focus on a particular subject of study, as opposed to the broader syllabuses of most universities. Now the catch with choosing a good college comes with knowing which ones are government accredited and fishing out the unregistered ones.

Other bodies that regulate college education in the country include the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) and the Quality Council For Trades & Occupations (QCTO). In most instances, the QCTO is a valid substitute for the DHET qualification. Here is a list of channels through which prospective students can contact the DHET:

Registered Colleges with Department of Education

Tertiary education is one of the most rigorous yet respected levels of education, both in the world and in South Africa. The most recognized type of tertiary education in South Africa is mainly university education. This program usually awards its participants a Bachelor’s Degree, a Master’s Degree, or a Ph.D.

List of Registered Colleges in South Africa

Despite how popular going to university is, not everyone ends up a graduate of one. In such cases, the student applies to study at other tertiary institutions, the most common of which are colleges.

In alphabetical order, below is a carefully compiled list of all the different provinces in South Africa and the registered colleges found under them. The institution’s website and telephone details have also been made available.
