Get your degree via correspondence study

2016-01-20 06:00

FOR the matric class of 2015, school life is over and a new chapter begins as you finally leave your schooling journey behind and enter the real world.

After completing the matric exams, you have been eagerly awaiting your results to use as a benchmark to make future plans.

For many, such plans have come to a halt with the reality of not gaining entrance into a university.

Are you one of them?

If you were not accepted into university due to limited space and it seems as if the door has closed, do not despair.

There are also many other opportunities.

There has been an increase in the number of learners qualifying for admission to bachelor studies from 150 737 in 2014 to 166 263 in 2015.

This indicates that universities can expect an increase in the number of applicants they will receive.

However, can the universities meet these demands or will they reach their capacity?

According to a media report last year, South African universities received hundreds of thousands of applications from hopeful students but could not accommodate the demand.

Lyceum, a Correspondence College for higher education offers specialised accredited degrees, postgraduate diplomas, diplomas, advanced diplomas, higher certificates and short learning programmes via distance learning.
