List of 20 Best Registered Private Colleges In South Africa

For a college to be registered in South Africa, it must fulfill all the registration requirements, which takes a long process. However, SA has registered many private colleges even with the rigorous registration process. These tertiary institutions are scattered all over the country, from Pretoria to Durban, Johannesburg, and many other provinces.

What Does It Mean For A College To Be Registered?

When a college is established, it is nothing but an edifice until it is registered with the appropriate authorities. For government-owned colleges, the registration process will be carried out by governmental officials in charge of such duties. On the other hand, a private college will have to assign staff that will handle registration for the college.

In South Africa, both public and private colleges are required to do the needful with the Department of Higher Education to ensure that their respective colleges are properly registered. Upon the completion of registration, DHET will send registration certificates to each college as evidence that they are now recognized by the Ministry of Education.

Registering a tertiary institution is of utmost importance. For one, students who wish to enroll for studies would love to find out the institution’s registration status. Many prospective students would not want to study in an unregistered college, thus, they are not likely to accept admission letters from such institutions

Again, registration confers a higher status on an academic institution, the college will be able to join associations and all the governmental bodies in charge of education at that level.

Any result issued by such institutions will be recognized in the labor market and the graduates will find it easier to score plum employment opportunities with such certificates.
