MasterStart offers online short courses that are accredited under the auspices of the University of Stellenbosch. Upon successful completion of a competency based short course, participants receive a certificate stating succesfully completed from Stellenbosch University.
In accordance with the regulatory requirements of the Council of Higher Education (CHE), short courses are not credit bearing and do not align to an NQF level qualification. While the NQF framework intends for the articulation from one qualification to another. USB-ED online short courses are intended as workplace-relevant skills support programmes, which provides participants with practical skills, that can be implemented almost immediately within the workplace.
These short courses are designed and approved by USB-ED faculty and by Stellenbosch University, as industry relevant skills interventions, which will assist you in your day to day work and accelerate your career progression.
