Recently, great advances towards better Education in South Africa have been made. The introduction of new technology to the formerly disadvantaged schools in many areas has been seen as a promising thing for the future. Organizations such as Khanya,(Nguni for enlightenment) have worked to provide computer access in state schools. A recent national initiative has been the creation of “FOCUS” schools. These specialize in specific curriculum areas (Business & Commerce, Engineering, Arts & Culture) and are very similar to the UK specialist schools program.
Below are a list of some reputable universities in South Africa
The University of Cape Town is committed to academic freedom, critical scholarship, rational and creative thought, and free inquiry. It is part of our mission to ensure that these ideals live; this necessarily requires a dynamic process of finding the balance between freedom and responsibility, rights and obligations, autonomy and accountability, transparency and efficiency, and permanence and transience; and of doing this through consultation and debate.
