South Africa offers a range of study options, including whether you would want to attend classes in person or from the comfort of your home. 

There are 26 Universities in South Africa but are there distance learning Universities?

Unisa is a University which uses the open distance learning model which sees it's students complete their Unisa courses outside of a campus with no physical classes. 

The model of learning does not affect the type of qualification you can get as Unisa offers the same level of degrees and certificates Universities who use contact learning would. The course requirements would also be the same, maybe even easier.

Unisa has learning centres all over the country with it's main campus being located in Pretoria. They have around 400 000 students currently enrolled from across South Africa, Africa and the world.

The 25 other Universities in South Africa are all contact Universities. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all these Universities had to introduce blended learning which entailed students studying from home but also attending classes.

After the Covid-19 vaccine was introduced, campuses started allowing students back on campus and contact classes continued. However, there are students who are not vaccinated and are not allowed to come back on to campus which would then essentially mean that they are participating in distance learning.

There are also other post-Matric options available to you should you want to study further but from the comfort of your home. Private higher education institutions such as Lyceum College, Intec, Damelin, Milpark Education and Boston City Campus offer online courses.

Welding is one of the many kinds of trades that can provide a decent living and secure job. There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
