South Africa Universities and Education

South Africa is certainly not lacking when it comes to tertiary education. Besides major towns or cities having at least one university (or university branch), there are also a number of long distance learning institutions and institutions catering specifically to certain specialized fields. Many universities specialize in international standards to ensure certificate acceptance in other parts of the world, as many young students enjoy a culture of travel and diversity before becoming fully immersed in the secular world. Most universities cultivate a vibrant student community and encourage sporting activities and social interaction. Recently a country-wide initiative has seen the one or more universities in the same geographical area come under the same headship. Below is a list of the main tertiary education facilities in South Africa (there are some highly specialized ones not mentioned here). If you wish to find out more about a particular university, just visit their official website.
