    Waste of money. Its VC fee's + Unisa fee's.
    Most people that go there usually do not get accepted to UKZN.

    Yup, University of Kwazulu Natal.
    I got in Howard campus. Those that didn't meet the minimum requirements (32 points)
    went to Unisa/Dut/Varsity College etc. Everyones first choice is usually UKZN

    I was at Varsity college a long time ago.
    My advice is if you can get into university rather go there. Was only at vc for 6 month then decided to rather go to tuks.
    VC was not my cup of tea, was like being in high school all over again

    Those stupid attendance reports they send your parents

    something to do with mature age application... due to your maturity, you dont have to fully satisfy the min requirements, but you do have to write a test of some sort. Not 100&#37; sure because all the uni's webpages aren't very clear about it

    VC is just another 'buy your degree' college. If you do have lots of money and want to go there just make sure what you are studying is going through UNISA. Even then, you will still need to pay your UNISA fees on top of VC fees. As well as writing all your exams at the Unisa campus. VC are just the 'middle man' who make all the big money. And also there own VC diploma's are worth very little (even nothing) in the job market. Good luck!

    The degrees aren't worth the paper they're printed on. Guess its okay if you're just needing a bit paper behind your experience.
