Looking into studying further in the city of Johannesburg, but not sure what courses and options are available to you? Studying further should be an exciting journey. Let us help you cut out any stress and anxiety and answer all your questions.

What are my Options?

If you are located in Johannesburg and wanting to study further there are many options available to you. Oftentimes when people think of higher education they associate it with attending a traditional university or college. As technology and our world has changed so has education and now there are many ways to obtain qualifications in any part of the world. Here are some of the avenues you could look into:

Attending a University

There are many universities located in Johannesburg. Universities, unlike Colleges, are focused on education, formal training, as well as research. Many students cannot afford to attend Universities or they simply cannot meet the entry requirements. If you want to obtain a degree then applying to University is your best bet.

Some of these institutions even offer short courses for students who simply cannot sacrifice three to four years of their life to get a degree. 


If attending University is not for you then why not try enrolling into a college? Colleges aim to equip their students with vocational training and skills development that relate to specific jobs. College accreditation comes from SETA (Sector Education and Training Authorities). They regulate qualifications related to specific professions and industries. This means that a qualification obtained from a college is industry-related. For a list of colleges and courses available in Johannesburg have a look here

Distance Learning 

Distance learning may seem a little scary at first, but there are many benefits to distance learning. It is not location bound, so regardless of where you are in South Africa you can enrol into a distance learning college. Whether you are in Cape Town or Johannesburg – this option could work for you.

Skills Academy is a distance learning institution. All our learning takes place online. We offer a variety of courses that you can do from the comfort of your own home. Our priority is learning for all – this means that for many of our provider programmes there are no specific requirements to enrol. All you need is a passion for learning. 

These are just a few of the options that are available to you. Johannesburg is a great city to study in and has a great student hub for support. Not only that, but it is a city full of different cultures and social activities. The great thing about Distance Learning is that it will give you the opportunity to enjoy everything the great city has to offer to you while you schedule your studies around your time. You won’t have to spend hours sitting in a lecture hall or classroom, but rather you will be able to gain experience and get a taste of what the city has to offer you.
