Who is The IIE?​

Rosebank College is a brand of The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE) which is one of the leading private higher education institutions in the country registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training. The IIE has more accredited higher education qualifications than any other – currently over 134. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of AdvTech Ltd, a public company listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (Pty) LTD. 

The IIE has several systems and processes which are driven centrally by our Central Academic Team, which is responsible for the academic governance and quality assurance of all programmes delivered through the campuses of all its educational brands, including Rosebank College. 

British Accreditation Council

The IIE is not only accredited in South Africa, but its dedication to providing quality education also led to it being accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC), an internationally recognised quality assurance agency. The British Accreditation Council is an independent authority in the United Kingdom that accredits private providers globally, including Greece, Switzerland, Singapore, India, Mauritius, and the United Arab Emirates.

Rosebank College students can be assured that their IIE learning experience meets international best practice standards. To find out more visit, http://www.the-bac.org

What sets IIE education apart?

We focus on building careers – we recognise that your qualification is the first step in a lifelong learning journey. We, therefore, concentrate on curricula that are current and relevant (and we ensure this through our strong partnerships with industry and other higher education institutions) and on you gaining essential skills and competencies that will promote your success during your period of study and beyond. For these reasons, you will get opportunities to apply your learning to real-world scenarios and develop your capacity as a global citizen.

We have several systems in place to ensure that we live up to these promises – from regular graduate tracking; to the involvement of academics and professionals in our regular programme review. 

What does the Central Academic Team (CAT) do?

Working with the lecturers and the teams on campus, the CAT Team is responsible for developing the curriculum, overseeing the delivery of that curriculum in the lecture rooms. Through meticulous attention to the quality and security of assessment and certification, the team ensures that your qualification is of the highest possible standard. 

Senate and its committees

In line with the way this is done internationally in Higher Education, The IIE has a Senate that oversees the quality and governance of all that we do and sets policies for everything from assessment to how the libraries offer you services. The Senate consists of academics and others from all the brands and the Central Academic Team, so the best skills and resources are pooled to ensure applied leading policies to your study.

Other committees (on which IIE Rosebank College is always directly represented) focus on Teaching and Learning or Exam Results or Brand Results or Research. The Registrar ensures that The IIE – including IIE Rosebank College – is compliant with all policies and regulations (internal and external) and senior managers at the Central Academic Team such as the Academic Manager and Heads of Faculty work with the brands to ensure high-quality education every day.


Quality assurance​

The continual monitoring and improvement of quality are of great importance to The IIE. For this reason, we have several quality assurance processes, which include evidence-driven reviews of our programmes, lecturer peer reviews, student success tracking and intervention programmes for students needing assistance. Also, we participate in the external reviews of bodies such as the BAC and HEQC.
