Make a fresh start with Oxbridge Academy
Consider the CompTIA courses
The CompTIA certifications are a good option for those who would like to start a career in IT, as well as for those who are already in the industry and want to boost their IT careers. The great thing about the CompTIA certifications is that they are industry leading, and you do not need matric to do them. The CompTIA certifications will equip you with key skills in IT networking, security, and support, and will help boost your CV.
Consider the technical matric and bridging courses
Oxbridge Academy offers technical matric and bridging courses, which are ideal for you if you did not finish matric at school.
The bridging courses are specifically designed to give you the opportunity to reach the academic level required for you to study an N1- or N4-level course.
If you choose to study all the way to the N6 level in your chosen field of study, you can apply for a National Diploma once you have passed your N6 Certificate and gained 18 months of relevant practical experience. You may then be eligible to study towards a relevant undergraduate degree at certain universities. If you want to follow this route to gain access to university, then we recommend that you do some research first. Have a look at the courses and universities that you are interested in, and find out exactly what their entrance requirements are.
