Many GED® graduates have been accepted for further studies and are studying both in South Africa or abroad. Please contact us for a list of success stories from our past students. Many US online universities accept GED® graduates as well as others around the world.

A Higher Certificate may also open the door to degree studies at university in South Africa. Enroll in a Higher Certificate ( NQL5) at a college or university after GED® After completing a Higher Certificate, a student can then apply for an undergraduate Degree. Progressing from a Higher Certificate into a Degree, students could potentially transfer up to 50% of their credits.

Once a student has completed the GED® and the Higher Certificate and meets the requirements as per the link below, he/she may apply to USAf for consideration.
