    Programme Overview

    The Business & Management programme offers delegates a broad array of courses to equip them to lead in business, professional and academic arenas. These programmes are also geared to help delegates acquire the tools, develop the skills, and cultivate the mindset central to organising, launching, managing successful new ventures, and practical skills for use directly on their return to the organisation.


    Programme Overview

    Public Administration and Finance courses will introduce you to the frameworks and tools to measure value and decision-making, both for corporate and personal assets. These are the essential courses for all decision-makers who are not finance professionals. These programmes will provide you with the range of managerial and administrative skills, that will further develop your growth in the public and private sectors.


    Programme Overview

    These courses are designed to ensure that our delegates are trained in the basic competencies of justice education and clinical legal training. Moreover, our Law courses provide crucial training and knowledge in a field that is vital to successful governmental and business practices appropriate to the criminal justice system.


    Programme Overview

    Bridging courses are short intensive courses designed for secondary school learners and mature students entering tertiary study. It is for students who are not confident with their preparation for university study, or they may not meet the accepted knowledge requirements.

    Bridging courses only teach to an introductory level and may assist in narrowing the gap between secondary school and university studies. Subjects taught in bridging courses do not carry any credit towards a degree.

    Students entering higher education without the required level of Mathematics should consider doing a bridging course, provided that they meet the other University requirements. This may include students enrolling in courses in engineering, chemistry, accounting, business, management, information technology, nursing, architecture, agriculture, pharmacy, dentistry, etc.

    Bridging courses are available to all students, including students who do not intend to study at UKZN.


    Programme Overview

    We offer a range of courses to meet the needs of our delegates, from beginner to more advanced levels. More information regarding these levels can be obtained after writing a short placement test which will determine the delegate’s aptitude.
