The CTI Education Group (CTI) is a fully registered, private higher education institution in South Africa. In 2006, CTI formed a partnership with the Midrand Graduate Institute (MGI) and today the group has CTI and MGI campuses across South Africa catering for both full-time and part-time learners within the fields of Information Technology, Commerce, Creative Arts & Communication, Psychology & Counselling and Law.
In 2011, Pearson Education, the world’s largest education organisation, acquired a 75% stake in CTI. Pearson seeks to serve the higher education market by providing learning materials, assessments, teachers and other educational solutions and tools. This partnership will ensure that Pearson’s strong brand, educational resources and global reach will leverage CTI’s strengths and transform the higher education landscape in Southern Africa.
Qualifications offered and supported through CTI and MGI range across four faculties: the Information Technology Faculty, the Commerce Faculty, the Creative Arts & Communication Faculty and the Law & Social Sciences Faculty.
CTI is the only higher education institution in Africa that is accredited by the South African Council on Higher Education (CHE) as well as the British Accreditation Council (BAC) in the UK. This unique, dual accreditation ensures that all programmes and academic service delivery (both for local and international programmes) are of the highest local and international standards and that learners have more comprehensive employment opportunities available to them upon completion of their studies.
CTI has degree-conferring status in South Africa, thus enabling learners the opportunity to study towards a degree at any of its twelve campuses. MGI has degree-conferring status in South Africa, and besides its main campus in Midrand, MGI has many sites of delivery located throughout South Africa, making it possible for learners to attend their studies full-time at any of the MGI campuses.
