Offered at accredited universities and colleges in Durban and Cape Town, Bachelor programs in South Africa span a wide range of disciplines and subjects. For three to four years, students enrolled in Bachelor programs will develop the theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to succeed in a career in their field, or to continue their education in a Master or PhD program. In South Africa, students sit for a Senior Certificate Examination during their final year of secondary school, and scores on this test are used to determine their admission into higher education.

There are 23 public universities in South Africa, 11 of which are "traditional" universities, focusing on theoretical learning, and the others integrate more practical or technical skills. International Logistics Management, Fashion Design, Media and Entertainment Management, Communication Management, Interior Design, Hospitality Management, International Business and Languages, Business Administration and Tourism Management are just some of the Bachelor degree programs offered by Stenden University and Style Design College in South Africa.
