Apply for college or varsity via SMS text message

If you are still looking for a place at a college or university there is help available from the CACH - the central application clearing house which is run by the government's Department of Higher Education and Training.

It assists prospecting students by sharing their matric results with public and private further and higher education institutions across the country, including colleges (public and private),  Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) colleges, universities, Setas and registered private higher institutions. 

Institutions with open study places, technical training opportunities, or apprenticeship slots then make them available to the most suitable applicants on the CACH database.

Students who have been declined offers at universities should come to CACH, which is an ideal route to find a study space that is still available at another institution. CACH also provides a portal for school leavers and other prospective students who may not have completed their schooling to career information, advice and development services.

HOW TO APPLY

You can apply to the CACH by sending an SMS text message to 49200. Include your name and ID number in the SMS.
