South Africa's universities and colleges: contact details

accreditation

Learning propels us forward in life. If your teen isn't yet sure where he or she would like to study after school – or if they want to study at all – start with doing some research. There may just be a place where your child's passions and abilities could be turned into a future career.

And if you need funding, don't let that hold you back. Here's a round-up of bursaries, scholarships and student loans they can apply for.

Parent24 compiled a list of tertiary institutions in South Africa, private and public, to help you in your search for the right space for your teen to further their studies. It's by no means an exhaustive list, and always remember to check the accreditation of tertiary institutions!
