The South African Students Congress says it is a concern to see so many bogus colleges continuing to take advantage of desperate and vulnerable students yearning to pursue their studies.
Saco General Secretary Themba Masondo said the increase in the number of bogus colleges in South Africa is a direct result of the inadequate post schooling system which excludes hundreds of thousands of students every year.
Masondo said that prospective students should be vigilant in choosing institutions of higher learning.
“If they suspect that the college where they want to register is not registered, they can simply call the Department of higher Education to confirm it” Masondo said.
Masondo added that some colleges are registered but offer non-accredited courses, so the accreditation of the colleges is important.
