I live in Johannesburg; can I study with College SA?

Yes, you do not have to study at a college in Johannesburg if you live in the area. College SA is a well-known distance learning college that help students all over South Africa to further their studies, including Johannesburg and its surrounds. Once you enrol with College SA, your study material and textbooks will be couriered and delivered right to your doorstep (free of charge).     

Is distance learning a better option than a face-to-face college in Johannesburg?

Face-to-face classes might be popular, but it is not for everyone. Face-to-face colleges require you to travel back and forth to campus on a daily basis, which may clash with your job or other commitments. If this is the case, distance learning is a better option for you.

Distance learning allows you to study from home and work full-time. You are in charge of your own study schedule and can study at your own pace.

Students can choose from a large range of accredited and non-accredited courses. We even have study programmes suitable for students with no Matric. College SA also offers a flexible payment option, which allows you to pay for your studies in easy-to-manage monthly instalments. You can also choose to pay upfront or per subject, whichever option best suits your budget.

Does College SA offer any student support in Johannesburg?

The College has in-house educational planners and tutors that are committed to helping each and every student succeed. They will assist you from selecting the right college study programme to passing your course.

Johannesburg students can get in contact with their designated educational planners and tutors via telephone and/or email. You can be sure to receive the academic and personal support you need to pass your course.   

Registered students are also automatically enrolled in our brand new online classroom. This student platform allows you to ask questions and discuss course work with other College SA students and tutors.
