Private Higher Education Institutions in South Africa 
South Africa has a variety of higher education institutions to choose from, ranging from public universities, colleges, private institutions, institutes of technology and academies. CTI Education Group is a registered Private Higher Education Institution and is not a public establishment and therefore not funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training. Both public and private tertiary establishments may offer the same qualifications but academic experiences might differ. CTI offers short learning programmes, higher certificates, degrees and postgraduate degrees such as honours and masters programmes. It is also important to ensure you are familiar with the National Qualification Framework (NQF) level of your chosen qualification, as it can range from a Higher Certificate to a Doctoral Degree. CTI Education Group also required its degree-conferring status in 2012, which means the institution developed and launched its own degrees in the Business and IT faculties, placing it alongside university-level institutions.
CTI conferred B.Com and B.Sc (IT) Degrees 
CTI’s new B.Com and B.Sc (IT) degrees will be available through full-time study from 2013 at all of the group's twelve campuses across South Africa. The two South African accredited degrees are also quality assured in the United Kingdom. Both degrees are accredited by the South African Higher Education Quality Committee and registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF by the South African Qualification Authority. At the same time, the degrees are externally moderated by Cardiff Metropolitan University in Wales. Learners also have the opportunity to sit for an additional project at the end of their second year of study. If successful, students will be eligible to receive a B.TEC Higher National Diploma (HND) awarded through Edexcel (UK) and the London School of Business and Management in London. The HND will give successful learners entry into third year studies at a variety of international universities abroad.
CTI was incepted in 1979 and formed a partnership with the private university, Midrand Graduate Institute (MGI) in 2006. CTI, formerly known as the Computer Training Institute broadened its horizons with this and various other partnerships to include, not only computer related education, but other fields such as Graphic Design, Commerce, Accounting, Law and Psychology. In 2011, the education organisation, Pearson Education, acquired 75% stake in CTI Education Group. CTI is also an official UNISA licensee for tuition support, offering on-campus lectures, support and examination for the UNISA LLB degree.
CTI has grown from one campus situated in Randburg, Gauteng, to having 13 remote campuses located across South Africa (this also includes the MGI campus situated in Midrand)
Teaching Methodology 
CTI has developed two teaching methodologies. The Mastery Learning Methodology (MLM) enables students to pace their own studies and monthly reports will update the parents on the student's progress. The student is also able to fast track their studies and obtain employment earlier than their university counterparts.
The Instructor-Led Training (ILT) involves the traditional lecturing environment and bi-annual exam sessions.
International Educational Relationship 
With the launch of the new Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) accredited degrees, CTI established a partnership with the Cardiff Metropolitan University which supports the quality-assurance of the degrees according to international standards and ensures that the quality is of equivalent standing to a UK degree. Graduates will have the opportunity to apply for postgraduate studies at many other UK universities abroad. Students, who have successfully completed the CTI bachelor degrees, moderated and quality assured by Cardiff Metropolitan University may be considered for direct entry to Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Master’s degrees, provided they meet all other necessary entry criteria. Students could also benefit from Cardiff Metropolitan University’s outward mobility programme which involves the exchange of students between CTI in South Africa and Cardiff Metropolitan University in the UK.
CTI has a number of campuses around South Africa, which include Bedfordview, Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban, Durbanville, East London, Nelspruit, Port Elizabeth, Potchefstroom, Pretoria, Randburg, Vanderbijlpark, as well as the MGI campus in Midrand. CTI's Head Office and International Students Office are both located in Fourways.
