ON course to be the boss!“Astonishingly, we have reached the midyear mark, which is quite a scary thought. If you still wish to study in 2016, you can make your higher education dreams come true.” That’s the message from Natalie Rabson of the Boston City Campus and Business College.“Mid-year registrations are in full swing at the moment and there are some exciting higher education courses for which you can register now,” she pointed out. “There is no need to wait until 2017.”Higher education courses lead to academic qualifications such as degrees, diplomas and higher certificates. These qualifications range from levels 5 to 7 on the National Qualification Framework (NQF). They require a matric certificate for entry and the duration is between one and three years of study, depending on the course selected.“What is different about the higher education courses is that they have a more academic focus and typically prepare students for a career field. In the case of the three-year qualifications, they may also prepare you for a specific job function,” Rabson elaborated. “Such courses tend to have a broad context and help you build a solid knowledge base that can be applied in different workplace environments and in different industries. “This means that you enter the job market with broad-based business skills that will allow you to climb the corporate ladder. This academic knowledge gives you confidence and also allows you to apply for numerous jobs you may not have been open to previously.”The higher education options at the Boston City Campus and Business College include a wide variety of fields, including: Management Marketing System Development Financial Accounting HR Management Advertising and Integrated Communication Practice HIV/Aids Counselling and ManagementThe above courses are offered full-time, part-time and via distance learning, making it easy for anyone to study, no matter what their personal circumstances.
