Julius Malema has responded to the announcement by President Zuma that university fees will paid for poor and middle class young people. The EFF leader has urged young people to go to universities in person to demand access to their courses.

However the leaders of SA universities have urged young people and their parents that they must not just ‘walk-in’ to varsities and colleges hoping for a place. Applications must be made online or via the government’s central application service, called CACH.

Young people who still want to apply at university this year can use the Cach system which will be open from the Friday the 5th of January.

Apply to Universities and Colleges via Central Application Clearing House [CACH]

The Central Application Clearing House is called CACH and allows you to apply for courses that are still available for varsity or college.

The official application service is now open for 2018 courses at varsity or college. The Central Application Clearing House is called CACH and matches your marks from the exams with courses that still have places available.

It assists prospecting students by sharing their matric results with public and private further and higher education institutions across the country, including colleges (public and private),  Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) colleges, universities, Setas and registered private higher institutions.

Institutions with open study places, technical training opportunities, or apprenticeship slots then make them available to the most suitable applicants on the CACH database.

Students who have been declined offers at universities should come to CACH, which is an ideal route to find a study space that is still available at another institution. CACH also provides a portal for school leavers and other prospective students who may not have completed their schooling to career information, advice and development services.

HOW TO APPLY

You can apply to the CACH by sending an SMS text message to 49200. Include your name and ID number in the SMS.

How to Find Accredited and Registered Nursing Colleges in South Africa

SANC Accredited Nursing Education Institutions

One of the functions of the Nursing Council is to accredit nursing education institutions (NEI’s) and the training programmes presented by those institutions.  Council is empowered in terms of legislation to perform these functions.

The Nursing Act, 2005 – Section 42 of the Act makes it illegal for any institution in South Africa to provide education and / or training intended to qualify a person to practise as a nurse or a midwife unless both the institution and the programme of education and training are accredited by the South African Nursing Council .

In fulfilling these obligations, the Council is protecting the rights of;

the Public to receive care from a nurse or midwife who has received a high quality education intended to equip him / her to provide competent, compassionate and ethically based nursing care; and
the Learner to receive education and training that meets all the requirements for registration as a practitioner in South Africa 

Illegal Institutions / Programmes

It is imperative that learners make sure that the institution where they will be trained as a nurse or midwife is accredited by the South African Nursing Council AND that the training programme (course) is also accredited by the Nursing Council .  If either is NOT ACCREDITED, the Nursing Council will not recognise any of the training the learner has received.  This means that the learner will not be able to practise in South Africa (or elsewhere) after completing the training.  All the time and money that the learner has spent on education and training will be wasted.

Often, such illegal institutions or institutions running illegal programmes try to protect themselves by giving their programmes obscure names like Pre-nursing and telling the prospective learner that by following such a course, the learner will be guaranteed entry into further nursing education (at the same or another nursing education institution).  There is no provision for such programmes in the Nursing Act, 2005 or in its regulations and no such guarantee.  The education and training regulations (available on this web-site) give minimum entry requirements for each nursing education and training programme.

The Nursing Council handles complaints or reports received about illegal institutions and/or illegal programmes operating in South Africa.

All allegations are investigated and, if it is found that an institution is operating illegally or running an illegal programme, the co-operation of the South African Police Services (SAPS) is sought in closing down the institution or programme.  SAPS is involved in this process because in terms of the Nursing Act, 2005 it is a criminal offence for someone to operate such an institution or to offer such a programme.

If you are aware of any institution that you think may be operating illegally or providing an illegal programme, please send full details to the Council so that the facts can be checked.
