Smart Ways To Spot A Bogus College. Unregistered and unaccredited colleges at further and higher education level are regrettably still part of our country’s landscape. Many students find themselves victims of these institutions once they finish Matric. The following points will help you notice if the institution is legit or not before committing yourself.
- All private higher education institutions need to be registered with the Department. Any credible campus must be able to show you a certificate to that effect, which details the campus, provider and qualifications.
- All higher education qualifications need to be accredited by the Higher Education Quality Committee of the Council on Higher Education – if they are not accredited they will not appear on the certificate referred to above.
- All qualifications must be registered on the NQF by SAQA and students should ask for the SAQA NQF identity numbers.
