How It Works
All our programmes are offered online. MySats is the online learning environment or ‘virtual classroom’ in which you will study. It is the central hub of the Seminary, the platform that makes online learning possible wherever you live in the world.
All our programmes are accredited by the Council on Higher Education, the Education and Training Quality Assurer of the South African Qualifications Authority, and are registered by the Department of Higher Education and Training.
Pay for courses or research phases as you are ready to take them. Spread the cost of the programme over the duration of your studies.
