This is a significant strategic outcome for the College and provides recognition for the quality of its programmes and growing policy focus. Ultimately, this full registration as a Private Higher Education Institution also supports the College’s role in the SADC region as the DHET is targeting greater collaboration, student mobility and research partnerships between educational institutions in the sub-continent.

The College is registered to offer the following Higher Education and Training Programmes in terms of section 54(1)(c) of the Higher Education Act, 1997 (Act No 101 of 1997), and Regulation 14(4)(a) of the Regulations for the Registration of Private Higher Education Institutions (2016), at the Main Campus, Kempiana Farm, Orpen Road, Kruger National Park, 1380:
