In addition to the option of attending a TVET college, there are 26 Universities, Universities of Technology and comprehensive Universities in South Africa. Spaces to study at these post-school learning institutions are limited and competition is tough.

These institutions offer qualifications such as certificates, diplomas or a degree. Learners who want to specialise further can study for Postgraduate or Advanced Diplomas, Honours, Masters or Doctoral Degrees. Universities equip graduates for anything from science, engineering and medicine to law, business, teaching and acting, to name a few. Courses/programmes last for periods ranging from twelve months to six years.
