If you are looking for a more practical and vocational study path to follow, then you should consider studying towards a National Diploma. Recognised by industry and universities, the National N Diplomas are approved and issued by the National Department of Higher Education and Training in Pretoria. They cover the key competencies in each career field and include a practical on-the-job component.
To study towards a National N Diploma, you need to have passed your Grade 12.

Depending on your interests and personality, you will choose from the following career fields available at UniCollege: Business Management, Marketing Management, Human Resource Management and Educare.

You need to complete an N4, N5 and N6 certificate. These cover fundamental and then more advanced topics in a variety of related subjects. Each certificate is made up of 4 modules which you can complete by attending classes full-time (5 months) or part-time (144 hours/24 weeks of evening classes)

UniCollege provides an easy-to-use logbook which you and your supervisor in the workplace needs to complete. You are required to complete 18 months practical experience in the workplace relevant to your qualification. UniCollege assists in finding practical placements for full-time learners.

Your logbook and 3 certificates are then submitted to the Dept of Higher Education & Training and you qualify to earn the National N Diploma in your chosen field.
