Why St Augustine

Our mission is to educate morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely and work skilfully to advance the common good and promote respect for the dignity of the human person.
South Africa's leader in the Humanities, St Augustine College opened in 1999. As a private Catholic institution of higher education, we offer a full range of degrees, from Bachelor to Doctorate, as well as a number of short courses for lifelong learning. Rooted in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, our educational offerings are addressed to people of all faiths (or none) and cultures, while particularly relevant to the context and challenges of the South African society today. All our qualifications are registered with SAQA and the DHET, and accredited by CHE.
We are committed to small classes, giving every learner individual attention and personalised tuition. St Augustine's has a very high pass rate compared to other South African institutions. Our fees are comparable to those at state universities and a number of bursaries are available. St Augustine College is a member of the global network of the Catholic universities, many of which are among the most highly ranked universities in the world.
