South Africa is home to a number of internationally acclaimed universities and educational institutions that have attracted a large number of international students from the continent and the world. WS World University Rankings lists 9 Universities from South Africa with University of Cape Town taking the lead over the University of Witwatersrand and Stellenbosch University, respectively.

As an aspirant, you will be able to join any one of the public universities, which can be found in three types, viz. Traditional Universities that focus on academics, Universities of Technology that are more vocational in nature and Comprehensive Universities that offer a combination of both. The Public Universities in South Africa offer a variety of qualifications, ranging from Undergraduate Degrees, Postgraduate Degrees, Diplomas and National Certificates.

When it comes to choosing the ideal place for you to pursue higher education, South Africa brings in many positives to the table Apart from being a relatively affordable destination of study compared to the US and UK, South Africa also offers international acclaimed qualifications and opportunities to collaborate with internationally renowned local scholars and researchers in different fields of specialisations.

Students from outside the South African Development Community are usually charged double the course fees that national and SADC students are charged. However, even with the increased fees, the cost of pursuing higher education along with the overall cost of living in South Africa for students is relatively less. Along with its affordability, placements, which are excellent, are another reason why international students choose to pursue higher education in the country.
