MasterStart offers online short courses that are accredited under the auspices of either the University of Stellenbosch (USB-ED), the University of Pretoria (GIBS) the University of Cape Town (GSB). Upon successful completion of a competency-based short course, participants receive a certificate stating successfully completed from the relevant 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 and GIBS 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, GIBS and GSB faculty and by Stellenbosch University, the University of Pretoria and the University of Cape Town, as industry relevant skills interventions, which will assist you in your day-to-day work and help to accelerate your career progression.
