Please share this article


The demand for access to quality tertiary qualifications has never been greater. As Boston City Campus extends its registration period, it's imperative to recognise the pivotal role of educational institutions in accommodating the aspirations of school leavers seeking to advance their careers through further education.

“Flexibility and adaptability are essential traits of the fourth IR – not only for employees but also for organisations themselves to be successful. And this includes universities, government and higher education institutions. Students have obstacles and our job is to remove the obstacles, not increase them”. So says Natalie Rabson, counsellor at Boston City Campus.

Amidst the backdrop of space constraints plaguing public universities, where only a fraction of applicants can be accommodated due to limited capacity, Boston City Campus stands out as a beacon of accessibility and opportunity. With over 4.5 million students vying for spots in public universities nationwide, the stark reality remains that just over 200,000 can be admitted.

This stark discrepancy underscores the urgent need for innovative solutions to expand access to higher education. One such solution lies in embracing digital methodologies, a hallmark of Boston's approach.

By leveraging technology, students can now pursue degrees and diplomas while accommodating their lifestyles and responsibilities. This flexibility not only enhances accessibility but also empowers individuals to upgrade their skills and position themselves ahead of the job queue.

Furthermore, Boston recognises the importance of practical experience in today's competitive job market. Through initiatives such as Graduate Support Services (GSS) and Work Integrated Learning (WIL), students are equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to secure employment successfully.

As highlighted by Stats SA, tertiary education significantly enhances the likelihood of finding employment, underscoring the value of investing in one's future through higher education.

Boston acknowledges the role of education in facilitating accessibility to tertiary qualifications, particularly for women. Boston's online methodology not only removes obstacles but also empowers women to balance their academic pursuits with familial and professional responsibilities.

By embracing e-learning, individuals can transform their lives and contribute meaningfully to society, regardless of gender or background.

Boston's nationwide presence ensures that students receive local support while minimising transport costs, further enhancing accessibility to quality education. Boston also introduced an intuitive a few years back where all Higher Certificates are subsidised by up to 30% increasing access to Higher Education.

As we navigate the challenges of the 21st century, it's imperative to recognise the pivotal role of institutions like Boston in shaping the future of our workforce and society at large.

As the demand for higher education continues to soar, it's incumbent upon us to champion initiatives that expand access and opportunity for all. By embracing digital methodologies, fostering practical experience, and prioritising accessibility, Boston City Campus exemplifies a commitment to empowering individuals and driving socio-economic progress.

Together, let's pave the way for a future where education knows no bounds.
