2017 open days

If you are at the point of trying to decide where to study, we have a great way to help you choose.  Open Days at institutions give you the chance to scout out your options and see what’s on offer.

Quick Fix: Attend an Open Day

You may not even be sure if the studying thing is for you but there is no harm in exploring this option.  If you’re thinking of studying but have no clue what to study then take a look at EduMatch for some guidance.  

What’s an Open Day?

It’s the best kind of day.  Open Days are hosted by institutions across South Africa so that visitors, who are thinking of studying, can view the campus.  It is the perfect opportunity to see the facilities first hand and ask any questions you have.  Think about it: the best way to get a feel for campus life is to actually be on campus.  

You don’t want to miss out on this.
