Eduvos Celebrates a Record Intake for 2023
28 May 2023
We are pleased to announce that Eduvos enrolled over 9 800 students in our Block 1 intake for 2023.
Our first-year cohort breaks last year’s record intake; and supersedes the intake numbers of some larger public universities. This represents a significant milestone for Eduvos, which has grown 38% year on year from 2021 and has sustained this growth in 2023.
The breakdown by faculty includes 3716 students in the Faculty of Commerce and Law, 3064 students in the Faculty of Information Technology, 2157 in the Faculty of Humanities and School of Graphic Design, and 821 in the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
"We are thrilled to welcome so many new students to Eduvos for the first intake of 2023," said Eduvos CEO, Siegie Brownlee.
"Our growth is a testament to our commitment to providing quality, affordable higher education to all students, regardless of their background or circumstances. It is further indicative of our staff’s passion and commitment to our purpose of shaping potential, student by student, towards Africa’s prosperity. It gives us such joy to grow the talented, resilient, and wonderful youth we have in Africa.”
Eduvos aims to provide education to up to 13 000 students this year. We offer four intakes throughout the year to accommodate those who missed enrolling at the start of the year but do not want to wait until 2024 to start their studies.
Continuing to increase access to higher education is incredibly important for South Africa, which has a young population, with 22.2 million people under the age of 19. Young Africans are expected to make up 42% of the world's youth by 2030. Private institutions have the growth capacity to help meet the demands of this expanding and changing population who will one day be the leaders of Africa.
