SPECIFIC ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
Through a direct partnership with the North-West University (NWU), Mukhanyo, who functions as a Distance Centre of NWU, is able to offer the same Educator training programmes presented to South African students by the NWU. The Bachelor in Education Degree (B.Ed) forms part of these programmes. Through lifelong development, teachers remain relevant and increase their knowledge and competencies. To accomplish this, teachers, however, require credible education partners who care about their development and who provide recognised content and excellent service in delivering study programmes.
Since 2010, the North-West University has been a partner involved in supporting the Mukhanyo teachers to upgrade their education qualifications. NWU is an internationally registered dual medium institution and has the largest number of educator students in relation to other South African universities. Its qualifications are also internationally recognised.
