About Higher Education Programmes
Higher Education programmes lead to academic qualifications registered on the Higher Education Qualifications Sub-Framework (HEQSF) of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF).

These more academic programmes build a flexible and adaptable knowledge base that can be applied in a great many professional workplace contexts.
Higher Education qualifications include Postgraduate, Degrees, Advanced Diplomas, Diplomas, Higher Certificates, and Advanced Certificates, and represent the pinnacle of any academic journey.
