This guide for students contains information on the more than 2,200 programs offered at institutions of higher education in South Africa, as well as on the approximately 1,200 bursaries that provide student financial aid. The first section urges students to adopt a long-range life planning approach to choosing a career and college. The next section presents brief descriptions, organized by field of interest, of typical occupations that require higher education. The following section provides course information by field of study, including university name, course name and degree, duration, and entry requirements. The following two sections present the same information for technikons, training institutions providing career-oriented education, and private colleges, respectively. Also provided is a list of technical colleges, with each college's courses and requirements listed. The section on bursaries distinguishes between scholarships (student aid based on academic merit) and bursaries (student aid based on both merit and need). Information on bursaries, loans, and other forms of financial aid are arranged in alphabetical order. Indexes to the bursaries are by field of study and institution. A final section provides addresses and phone numbers of the institutions listed in the directory. (DB)
