Helderberg College Of Higher Education

Helderberg College Of Higher Education


Our academic year is made up of just two semesters, with between 65 – 70 lecture days.

Registration takes place at the beginning of each semester, but if you’re registering for the first time, make sure you read the registration section of the Prospectus carefully so that you bring the right documents. All new students also get to enjoy a fun-filled orientation programme at the beginning of the semester, so you can get to know your College and peers better.

When applying, remember that we also consider students that might qualify for Recognition of Prior Learning. That means that through an RPL Portfolio Course, an English test and an interview, the College will recognize that a learner has sufficiently mastered the content of parts of a course of study prior to the degree applied for, either formally or informally, and will grant formal recognition for that knowledge. Please note that a limited number of students can be admitted through this route.

Because it’s important to us that each student is immersed in the ethos of Helderberg, we do insist that every student spend one year in residence on the campus during their qualification. Remember, like any educational institution, we take academic dishonesty very seriously. Make sure you understand what plagiarism is very carefully, as well as our stance on cheating and colluding. You can find all of this explained in detail in the College Prospectus.

Your results are issued at the end of each semester, so you can see the fruits of your labour! Good luck, future students!
