Understanding Our Courses

In partnership with Skills Academy and The Bellview Institute of Distance Learning, Matric College offers several courses that you can start without a matric certificate. 

ICB Courses

The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers offers courses in both business and financial management. All of their courses are well received by employers because of their high quality. 

Each of the three study streams offered by ICB are internationally recognised scarce skills. These study streams include:

Two of the three study streams can be started without a matric certificate. Office Administration, however, requires that you completed your grade 12 year to apply.

Matric Courses

Whether you were unable to complete your matric year, or you are just looking to improve your marks, Matric College has a few options. 

Matric Upgrade

If you would like to improve your matric marks in general or to get into a specific course, a Matric Upgrade is the right choice. 

With our Matric Upgrade course, you will be able to redo the subjects you wish to improve. You can also decide to choose new subjects that are better suited to you, or that are course-specific. 

As long as you are over the age of 21 and have completed your matric year, you can apply.

Adult Matric

No matter how many years you have been out of school, you still have the chance to get your matric certificate. With our Adult Matric course, you can work your way to a matric certificate with only a grade 9 certificate needed to apply. 

You can apply to start your Adult Matric course at 19, but can only write the exams at the age of 21. 

This is a great choice for anybody looking to further their education. It is also a good option for individuals looking to go to university or find work more easily.

With some courses, you can apply with a matric equivalent certificate. Matric College has 2 ICB courses that double as matric equivalent certificates. These are:
