Welcome to Helderberg College, an institution with a history of over 120 years delivering high quality, values-based, wholistic education and producing graduates with a difference. If you are on the threshold pursuing higher studies, consider Helderberg College, where you will receive Adventist education. It is stated as “True education means more than pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than preparation for the life that is now. It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, mental and the spiritual powers” (Education, p. 13).
The College is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training of the Government of South Africa and accredited by the Council on Higher Education. The College has a distinct mission underpinned by a philosophy of education based on a biblical and theistic world-view. Furthermore, we have a clear set of outcomes for its graduates in the form of ‘graduate attributes’ for each of the qualifications outlined in the prospectus.
As you browse, throughout this website and the prospectus you will find information about our programmes and our commitment to equip you with knowledge and competencies not only for employment but also for life. As a College community we have a distinct campus atmosphere and ethos that facilitates learning, growth, development and character formation. We strive to provide a campus which is free of inclinations and ills of the world.
The values that govern our institution are: quality, transparency, integrity, service, respect, Christ-centeredness, innovation, consultation, and whole-life excellence. Our vision is “to be the institution of choice of learning excellence in the higher education sector”. We make every effort to provide an education and service par excellence.
Once again I welcome you to Helderberg College --- Your Christian varsity of excellence
