Do you offer classes or am I required to do self study?

We offer face-to-face, lecture based classes. Further, we offer continuous support to our students and lecturers through our customer relationship management procedures where students are encouraged to give feedback on their learning experience.

We encourage prospective students to consider studying a lecture-based study programme versus a distance learning programme.  Lecture-based studies at Unigrad offer on-campus assistance and continuous support by a committed, dynamic team of professionals.

Where can I get advice on where and what to study?

What is the difference between Full Time and Part Time studies?
Full-time studies:  Students study for a period of one or two years depending on the course.  Class timetables are similar to those at university.  Students attend class during the week, Monday to Friday.  Where possible, classes start in the morning and run into the early afternoon.  The rest of the day is open for students to do research, work on projects or find part-time employment.

Part-time studies:  Part-time classes are ideal for working individuals. Classes are offered on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening, or on a Saturday morning.

There is no difference in the quality of part-time and full-time qualifications.  We have a comprehensive schedule you are welcome to refer to for starting dates and durations of courses offered at Unigrad.

Do you guarantee me a job after I complete my studies?
No institution can guarantee you placement after finishing your qualification, however at Unigrad we assist our full-time students to get “job ready”.  We invite a personnel agency that specializes in career placements to train you in creating a professional CV and how to deal with stressful interviews.

Are your programmes internationally recognised?
Each programme offered at Unigrad is unique.  The programmes are provided, endorsed and/or accredited by a variety of professional authorities, both local and international.  Please consult the fact sheet specific to your field of study for more information.

What is a Short Learning Programme (SLP)?
The modern business world demands a vast variety of skills and abilities.  Unigrad offers an extensive range of short learning programmes particularly designed to address these demands by enhancing the quality of skills and knowledge available to the workplace.  These short learning programmes are typically aimed at working adults, or those seeking employment and whilst they are not full qualifications, such as those appearing on the NQF and registered with SAQA, their benefit lies in their rapid and significant improvement to skill and knowledge levels of the student.  This makes short learning programmes ideal for people who need to upgrade their CV’s, but do not have the time or finances to engage in a lengthy course of study.  Many of Unigrad’s short learning programmes are endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Business Management (CIBM).
