Only private providers of higher education have to formally apply for accreditation as providers. The University of KwaZulu-Natal is accredited as a university by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and is registered on the SAQA list of Public Higher Education Providers. None of the 25 public universities in South Africa receive/require provider accreditation/registration numbers from the Department of Education or from SAQA.
SAQA stopped recording short courses in November 2001. In the case of public universities like UKZN, this responsibility now rests with the institution, provided that there is a quality assurance mechanism in place, controlled and managed by the University. All short courses offered by UKZN Extended Learning are accredited by the University itself, by means of its quality assurance systems and mechanisms that have been approved by the Council on Higher Education (CHE)/HEQC, complying with SAQA regulations.View our Accreditation
