Studying in South Africa is a chance to experience life in one of the most diverse and complex countries in the world, while also gaining a degree internationally ranked.
Since the 1990s, when racial segregation was removed from the country’s laws, South Africa has made significant progress in developing a more democratic society.
But the effects of apartheid linger on, and there are still many problems to be addressed, including high rates of violent crime, poverty and HIV/AIDS infection.
However, education is one area where South Africa already excels, and that looks set to continue.
As well as having a number of world-class schools, South Africa also offers students the prospect of studying in some of Africa’s most exciting and diverse cities, exploring incredible wildlife reserves, and experiencing at first hand this unique culture in which sharing, sports and the great outdoors are all essential components.
