Rosebank College, an educational brand of The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE), has officially opened the doors to its new campus in Cape Town. Situated at 13 Buitengracht Street, the new campus brings the number of IIE Rosebank College campuses across the country to nine.
"Our expansion strategy is to establish campuses nationally, providing access to quality, affordable education for South African youth. Since we already have campuses in Bloemfontein, Braamfontein, Durban, Pretoria CBD, Pretoria Sunnyside, Polokwane, Pietermaritzburg and Port Elizabeth - Cape Town was an automatic next choice," says Greg Fillmore, Managing Director at IIE Rosebank College.
"Online enquiries have indicated significant interest from prospective students in Cape Town. While IIE qualifications are accredited by the same accreditation body as any university in South Africa (the Council on Higher Education (CHE)), the affordability of IIE qualifications and the assistance that we offer our graduates with preparing them for the world of work are factors which will attract prospective students," says Moloko Chepape, General Manager at IIE Rosebank College.
why choose an IIE Rosebank College campus?
Students who choose the Cape Town campus are looking to benefit from face-to-face interaction with their classmates and lecturers, a WiFi enabled campus, a well-stocked library, canteen facilities and the community feeling that comes with being a student at any IIE Rosebank College campus nationwide. These are students looking to connect with the heartbeat of the city, where our campus is located. "Being affordable and accessible is vital to achieving inclusive education that aims to provide access for all," says James Read, National Sales Manager at IIE Rosebank College. "The Cape Town campus will offer traditional classroom learning, where classes vary from early morning to afternoon lessons," adds Read. This type of delivery also allows students the option to study part-time with classes taking place on Saturdays on selected campuses. For those who are looking to study at their own pace, or from the comfort of their own home, there's an IIE online
learning delivery option available. Since the inception of our Graduate Empowerment Programme in 2012, IIE Rosebank College has placed over 10 700 graduates in employment to date, proof that IIE graduates meet the demands of the world of work. Through career coaching sessions, IIE graduates are taught to effectively apply and interview for employment thus empowering graduates with the tools they need to increase their chances of securing work.
Our Cape Town campus provides easy access to public transport options including trains, taxis and buses. Cape Town, which is known to be an attractive destination for tourists and locals alike, offers students the best of all worlds. Whether you are looking to enjoy the beauty of Table Mountain or are looking to absorb the eclectic cultural experience that the city offers, Cape Town is the perfect location to work, study and play. Whether you choose to pursue an IIE Degree, Diploma or Higher Certificate, each IIE qualification is designed to make you career ready, in line with industry standards and expectations.
