The registration of private higher education institutions The Department of Higher Education and Training implements its registration and regulation functions for private higher education institutions in accordance with the requirements of the: 1) Higher Education Act, 1997 (Act No. 101 of 1997). 2) Regulations for the Registration of Private Higher Education Institutions, published in Government Gazette No.39880 dated 31 March 2016 (hereafter referred to as the Regulations).
The Regulations were promulgated on 31 March 2016, and came into effect on 1 April 2016 (Note: The Regulations for the Registration of Private Higher Education Institutions, 2016 repeals the Regulations for the Registration of Private Higher Education Institutions, 2002).The Regulations are an elaboration of the provisions of the Act. They clarify the requirements of the Act. The requirement to register as a private higher education institution only applies to private institutions offering learning programmes that result in the award of whole qualifications, that is, learning programmes that result in the award of certificates, diplomas or degrees at higher education level.
The granting of registration, as contemplated in the Act, means that the Registrar grants an institution the legal authority to offer higher education programmes and award higher education qualifications.
The purpose of registering private institutions offering higher education is to ensure that:
private higher education institutions offer an acceptable quality of education.
students receive higher education from institutions that have the resources, capacity and/or expertise to deliver quality programmes.
students enrolled with private higher education institutions obtain qualifications that are aligned with the NQF.
the education system continues on a path of transformation in accordance with government policy and regulation. The registration process does not affect public higher education institutions.
The regulatory framework sets criteria that define who is eligible for applying for registration and who qualifies for registration. It further outlines the responsibilities of an institution once registered.
