What we offer

In addition, the Private Tertiary Institution offers a 2-year mixed mode programme for the Higher Certificate in Biblical Studies.

Distance Learning known as Blended Learning at SAC

Blended Learning at St. Augustine’s College: Always together however far apart.

Some institutions expect you to always be on campus, others teach via correspondence where you never meet your lecturer or other students. Here at St. Augustine’s we chart a different path through blended learning. What we mean by ‘blended’ is that our classes are online. Lectures are presented live. You join lectures, receive your materials, and meet and participate with fellow students via Google Classroom. So, through blended learning we get the best of both worlds: a vibrant, engaging, and live classroom, yet, students are able to join in from anywhere in the world.

Accreditation
The College is accredited by the national Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), through the Council for Higher Education (CHE) to offer their range of qualifications including BTh (Hons), Master of Philosophy in Theology and Doctor of Philosophy in Theology.

Reviews

I chose St Augustine above all previous institutions I studied at as the intellectual home for my doctoral study. The reason? More than a home, I found a family where I am not just a number but a valuable, deserving human being destined to grow and flourish in a challenging academic environment. Yes, St Augustine is the place where I’ve been challenged more than I thought possible – intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and often, physically – but always strengthened by the knowledge that the guidance, support, and encouragement of the staff at St Augustine, particularly my supervisor Dr Jaco Kruger, will not allow me to give up on my studies or myself. I found a home, a family, I said. More and more I come to think St Augustine found me. I belong. I am St Augustine, proudly St Augustine. I would want this sense of home, of family, of belonging for every student considering tertiary education – Anastasia De Vries (Doctor of Philosophy in Philosophy)


I joined the St. Augustine family back in 2021. Am studying Peace Studies (Hons).
My experience has been nothing less than great. The teaching staff are very friendly, understanding of their students’ backgrounds, always well prepared and well read. I find that very stimulating.

I really enjoyed the lectures or class sessions we had with all the lecturers, they were very educational, experiential and relevant to today’s world, particularly in Peace Studies.

I think I have learned to approach life very differently with newer insights since my time at St. Augustine and my quest for living a peaceful life has reached another level, however difficult in practice.

I certainly would encourage any person who is interested in tertiary studies, particularly in Peace Studies, to enroll with the College. The experience more than just academic learning, it’s experiential and relevant to life.
I also found that the administration staff very efficient; queries were always responded to quite expeditiously at any time. Thanks for the efficiency - Atty Sobayeni (Bachelor of Arts Honours in Peace Studies)



My experience with St Augustine has been a very exciting and enriching one. What I have found to be unequalled is the high standard required for academic performance. Challenging though I found it to be initially I eventually got used to it. This experience straddled to the rest of my life, and I learnt to be very particular in whatever I did research in. The patience of the lecturers and the collegiality encouraged among us as students enriched one’s worldview and impacted one’s everyday life. I will never forget the helpfulness and courtesy of the staff made the college a place where one felt safe enough to be themselves. In short, I grew immensely – not just academically but also socially -during the tears I spent in St Augustine – Coto Makaba (Master of Philosophy in Theology)


I undertook to study at Saint Augustine College of South Africa, as their Mission and Vision resonates with my values. While studying my Master’s degree, I found that the modules offered were of a very high standard and were covered by well qualified lecturers from all over the world. Additionally, the curriculum for this degree was well structured and efficiently carried out. Completing my Master’s degree at Saint Augustine was such a great experience for me that I decided to pursue my Doctoral degree with them as well. I feel that the process for this Doctoral degree is rigorous and meticulous, providing constructive and personal interaction between the supervisor and the student, thereby thoroughly equipping the student in their chosen field of study. The environment is peaceful given that the staff are warm, engaging and always available to assist, and the premises are clean and neat – Gisele Kalil (Doctor of Philosophy in Theology)



The wonderful thing about St Augustine College is the professionalism, helpfulness, and friendliness of the staff. Whichever field you study, you can be confident that your tutors will be highly knowledgeable about the field. If you have problem or question or confusion, you simply reach out to the staff, who are always willing to help. Finally, the staff treat you with incredible respect, and they value you as fellow human being. Overall, the experience has been wonderful for me, and I highly recommend St Augustine College - Dr Jacobus Erasmus (Doctor of Philosophy in Theology)



My experience as a student at St Augustine has been a journey of self-discovery, knowledge acquisition and absolute joy. Through my academic journey I have discovered a world that once hidden. The lecturers are attentive and present throughout – Portia Mashinini (Master of Philosophy in Theology)



I was delighted when I found out that St Augustine College offers a masters degree in Christian Spirituality and that it was being offered online. The course itself has exceeded my expectations, providing depth in areas I was previously interested in and challenging my thinking in areas I hadn’t thought to question. I can heartily recommend the college to students who are looking for an intimate classroom experience where the lecturer takes a personal interest in your progress, and to anyone who enjoys focusing on one subject per term. The format makes for a very natural and integrated learning experience – Leanne Hunt (Master of Philosophy in Theology)



At St. Augustine Catholic University (SACSA) I was able to tap into the most elusive intellectual freedom that of researching in peace (r.i.p).The staff at SACSA enable students to step out of their comfort zone, while also ensuring that they acquire new knowledge while thinking over the old. As a final year* MPhil Applied Ethics Specialisation in Business Ethics, my research study ensures that I practice what I am learning,- to be more engaged, strive for excellence and conduct business in an ethical manner. Make enquires, apply- share your experiences and learn from others along the way! – Moya Nkosi (Master of Philosophy in Applied Ethics)



I have found St Augustine College of South Africa is not only a theory based but also praxis oriented academic institution.
Its academic approach and focus is informed by context and unique needs of our society in a socio economically developing country in Africa.
High academic standards are maintained and encouraged at all times.
The institution is not only physically homely, but also the mood and spirit is that of a home.
Good care is taken in terms of academic support to students, thus ensuring that each student derives value from their studies and complete their study programmes.
Leaders of tomorrow, yes, leaders that are ideal for our societies now are groomed and developed at St Augustine College of South Africa.
St Augustine College of South Africa is an institution to be and to pursue one’s academic dreams – Zolani Makalima (Master of Philosophy in Applied Ethics)
