This mission is supported in official pronouncements, which make it clear that “At the centre of the transformation agenda in education is the principle of lifelong learning and the need to rectify the inequities of the past through increased access to Higher Education, which is essential to promoting skills and human resource development and a pre-condition for facilitating social and economic transformation” (CHE, 2008).
NOTE: Boston City Campus & Business College offers students the possibility of registering for any module in either Higher Education Programmes or Occupational Programmes as Occasional Students. Students who choose to pursue this route of study, elect to enrol in modules for non-qualification purposes. In other words, Occasional Students are not intending to complete a qualification. Their interest is in professional and personal development. Should students who complete modules as Occasional Students wish to enrol in one of Boston’s programmes, the guiding principles of Boston’s policy on the Recognition of Prior Learning and/or Credit Accumulation and Transfer will apply.
Programme-specific admission requirements are determined by the Board of Directors, Academic Committee and where applicable as prescribed by the various Institutes, Quality Councils and SAQA.
Boston’s provision of a wide range of Short Learning Programmes, well established within the Higher Education system globally, is very important in contributing to meeting the objectives of lifelong learning, correcting inequalities and underscoring aspirations.
