Short Certificate Courses

As the official Centre for Part Time studies at the University of the Witwatersrand, Wits Plus offers a range of short courses and certificate programmes.

These qualifications are ideal for the mature working person who wants to acquire new skills and knowledge, advance their career or even make a career change.

All courses are offered on a part time basis by attending evening and/or Saturday classes. Participants attend class once or twice a week (depending on the course). 

Most courses run over 12 weeks (one two-hour lecture a week) with a revision session in the 13th week and a final assessment in the 14th week.

Wits Plus also offers one year (full year) courses. These courses only commence at the beginning of the year.

We believe our methods offer students time to absorb and apply material learned in class so that deep level learning is achieved and the course becomes an asset to any individual’s life.


THE FOLLOWING COURSES WILL BE OFFERED IN THE 2ND SEMESTER OF 2015 (MID-YEAR INTAKE).  Mid-year intake applications will open on 1 APRIL and close on 29 MAY 2015.
