Only 26% of graduates finish their 3-year-degrees on time
There has been an increasing number of Higher Education dropouts in the country.
This is according to the Vital Stats Public Higher Education 2016 report which provides counsel on Higher education.
This report contains the latest audit student enrolment and graduates statistics of all 26 universities in South Africa. The report indicates that about a third of students who enrolled for a four year degree for the first time in 2011 had dropped out by 2016.
If we look at the cohorts that registered in 2009 for a three-year degree; by the end of three years when they should have completed their degrees, only 26% of those that had registered had finished.Narend Baijnath, Head of the Council for Higher Education
For four-year degrees, we are seeing a similar picture. At the end o four years, only 40% of those students had completed. And after taking an extra year, only 55% had completed.Narend Baijnath, Head of the Council for Higher Education
40% of those students are either dropping out or not completing their degree for one reason or the other.Narend Baijnath, Head of the Council for Higher Education
