    The Department of Higher Education and Training embarks on Awareness Campaign on Fake Colleges.

    The Department of Higher Education and Training is set to embark on a public awareness campaign aimed at enforcing compliance and ensuring that institutions in the private higher learning sector operate within the law.
    The lack of accommodation at public universities and colleges, and anxious parents who want their children to access post-school education and training opportunities result in many prospective students enrolling at unregistered private higher education institutions and colleges that are prevalent at this time of the year.

    Prospective students can also access the private higher education institutions and college registers on the Department’s website at or alternatively call a toll-free number: 0800 872 222.

    The two-day inspection campaign on Private Colleges will take place in the City of Polokwane, Limpopo.
