Changing the Experience of Higher Education

We are big enough to make a difference and small enough to care about all our students.

St Augustine College of South Africa is a small private Higher Education Institution currently located in Victory Park, Johannesburg.  The College offers a variety of postgraduate degrees which include Honours, Masters and Doctors degrees.  A Higher Certificate in Biblical Studies is offered by correspondence. 

On our campus, you have access to safe parking, and between lectures, you can relax with friends under the trees in the beautiful gardens.


Special features which make St Augustine different are:

  • Students have personal tutors to help them master their subjects.
  • Our lecture groups are limited to 60 students so that students can engage with lecturers in discussion.
  • Our inter-disciplinary approach to education means that you get a comprehensive, rounded education.
  • Values-based education which focuses on the development of each student.
  • Safe and secure campus.
  • You won’t get lost in the crowds or ignored in the system
  • St Augustine is accredited by the CHE and the Department of Education.
  • Our fees are comparable to State universities.
  • We offer a conversion course for those who have maths literacy at matric level.
  • The College library currently has 35,000 books and grows monthly with new acquisitions of books and journals in the various fields of study.

St Augustine is making higher education affordable for all.  As a private institute, our fees are at the same level as State Universities.  We are committed to helping South Africa grow by harnessing and guiding the great potential of our young people.
