Yes, you can study with us from outside South Africa, as you will be studying from home, and your assignments can be faxed, posted or emailed to us. As an international student, you will need to pay a non-refundable deposit of R2400 for your course at registration. This amount covers the registration fee and one of the course books. Also remember that all Nated exams must be written in South Africa.
Yes, we offer a range of Matric Courses, including Matric Rewrites, as well as other courses that can help you get onto the same or higher academic level as Matric. For instance, our N4-N6 National Qualifications are on NQF level 5, which is higher than a Matric Certificate. You can find more info about matric here.
Although we do not do placements, we do try to assist you by issuing you with progress reports and other necessary documents to assist you in finding employment. We also give you advice on how to compile your CV, and we empower you with job-seeking skills.

Distance learning, or home study, is a form of education where students study from home, instead of attending classes. Students receive their study material via post or courier, or download it from the internet, and receive academic support from their instructors and tutors via telephone, email, and post.

TVET stands for ‘technical and vocational education and training’ and is only applicable to public colleges in South Africa. TVET colleges offer the same qualifications than Oxbridge Academy does. Oxbridge Academy can’t be called a TVET college because we are a private college and not state-owned. To read more about TVET colleges, please click here.
Most of the short learning programmes at Oxbridge Academy are non-accredited skills development courses, designed to help you learn workplace-relevant skills quickly and affordably. You can click here to find out more.
Yes, you will be able to email a tutor for help whenever you need it, and a tutor will always respond to your request within 48 hours. You will also receive constructive feedback on each and every assignment that you submit to us during the course of your studies. Our goal is to give you all the help that you need to pass your course successfully.
Distance education means that you complete your studies from home, without attending physical classes. It can take different forms – you can study a distance learning course via correspondence, where you receive physical study material via post or courier; or you can study online, where all of your course material is available electronically. Online courses are therefore a specific type of distance learning.
