One of the problems that matric graduates face is the limited spaces that are available at tertiary institutions. The other is that having been focused on their matric studies and exams, they may have missed application deadlines at the majority of tertiary institutions. 

While we advise young people to follow their passion in their careers, it becomes difficult if you cannot apply for studies towards that career! Limited spaces mean that for example, at three of Gauteng’s leading institutions only one in four applications will be accepted.

The good news is that registrations for diplomas and degrees at Boston City Campus & Business College are still open.   What’s more, prospective students who apply and  register before 15 December will have the added benefit of paying 2014 fees in 2015 – a significant fee saving.

“Boston would like to encourage all students r to visit their nearest Boston Campus.  Those who are still uncertain about what they want to study should complete our Career Compass Assessment, a computerised assessment tool that clarifies  your interests, passions and skills and identifies which career paths are best suited for you.  With the help of our career counsellors, you will be able to decide what course is best for you,” says Natalie Rabson, Marketing Manager at Boston. 
 
Boston maintains liaison with corporates in order to continue offering relevant courses that meet industry needs, developed by industry specialists who are leading professionals in their fields.  In order to meet industry demand for specific skills, Boston added two new courses to its diploma portfolio:

  • Diploma in Business Management
    According to Rabson, “This Diploma will provide the necessary knowledge to make it in a career in the business sector, and should be considered by those who are self-employed or thinking of starting their own business, whether small or big”.

  • Diploma in Events Management
    In recognition of the extent to which event management has evolved, Boston is also offers a Diploma in Event Management. “Business awareness, teamwork, creativity, project management and problem solving are all sharpened through the planning and delivery of events, and are key in terms of employability. This Event Management Diploma will help students develop these skills in themselves, and understand how they can be applied and transferred into any number of different sectors,” says Rabson.
