Why study in South Africa?

Students from India who are contemplating an international tertiary qualification should strongly consider studying in South Africa.

Sandton

Regenesys Business School is located in Sandton, Johannesburg, in the heart of the Premier Business District in Africa. Our campus is a short walk away from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, and is nestled between the corporate offices of local and international businesses. The Gautrain underground station is seven minutes’ walk away. The nearby Nelson Mandela Square is ringed by high-end shops and urban amenities and five-star hotels. Close by are some of the top South African investment banks, financial and legal consultants, and one of the biggest convention centres on the African continent. Regenesys is right on the pulse of African and International business. The Sandton Community Policing Forum provides additional security to the 84 square kilometres of the Sandton policing precinct, making our campus a very safe neighbourhood. The elegant coffee shops of Sandton are ideal for an earnest conversation about a business case, over a latte.

 

Sandton is the heart of business in South Africa

Microcosm

South Africa is a microcosm of the world. All the world’s big challenges are represented in South Africa: race, culture, class, ethnicity, colonialism, capitalism, poverty, slavery, settler economies and liberation movements.

Studying in South Africa is a wonderful opportunity to observe first-hand and to directly understand the complexities of operating on the world stage. Very few countries offer this concentrated diversity, and our faculty are well versed on mediating and integrating these insights into the teaching process. It is not by chance that South Africans have risen to top positions around the world. A year of study in South Africa cultivates a deeper appreciation of working with other cultures, languages and diverse work environments.

 

A year at Regenesys is excellent preparation for the world stage.

 

The Indian community in South Africa

Students from India will immediately find themselves at home in South Africa. The bonds between India and South Africa go back centuries. We share a common history in the fight against domination and oppression. South Africa has the largest Indian diaspora on the African continent, numbering almost 1,5 million persons. Indian South Africans preserve their cultural heritage, languages and religious beliefs, being either Christian, Hindu or Muslim and speaking English, with Indian languages like Hindi, Telugu, Tamil or Gujarati being spoken less frequently as second languages.

Mohandas Gandhi spent 23 years in South Africa, and it was in this country that he made his historic train journey in June 1893 from Pietermaritzburg to Pretoria. Gandhi had purchased a first-class ticket and was seated in a first-class compartment. A White person took offence and called the railway officials who ordered Gandhi to get out. Gandhi produced his ticket and refused to comply with the order. A White police officer manhandled him out of the train, and his luggage was tossed out on to the platform. Regenesys students will be able visit Satyagraha House in Orchards, Johannesburg, where the future Mahatma created and developed Satyagraha, his philosophy of passive resistance, arising from that experience on a train. This contribution would go on to have major consequences for South Africa, India and the World.

The more adventurous will want to go to Durban to see the Sarvodaya House on the Phoenix heritage site, built-in 1904 for Gandhi and his family. The printing press on which the first Indian newspaper in South Africa was printed is still there. The paper started in 1903 and was continually printed until 1961. The Phoenix settlement has played a critical part in promoting peace, justice and equality in both the spiritual and political contexts.

Indian students will reconnect with their culture and their place in the world.

Johannesburg

Sandton is the business district and part of the city of  Johannesburg. Johannesburg, known Jozi, Joburg, or “The City of Gold”, is the largest city in South Africa, and is one of the 50 largest urban areas in the world. It is the provincial capital and largest city of Gauteng, which is the wealthiest province in South Africa. Johannesburg is the seat of the Constitutional Court, the highest court in South Africa. Fittingly, the Constitutional Court is housed in an old prison. Most of the major South African companies and banks have their head offices in Johannesburg. It was here that gold was discovered in 1888 and it has been the hub of commerce and industry ever since.

Every student will want to go to the famous Vilakazi Street in Soweto, the huge suburb adjacent to Johannesburg. It is here where Nelson Mandela lived upon his release after 27 years of imprisonment. Both Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu lived here –  two Nobel Prize winners close together on the same street.

Johannesburg is full of worthy role models and examples of entrepreneurial success.

 

Wildlife

Everybody thinks of the world renowned Kruger National Park, when the conversation steers towards wildlife in South Africa. But there are many game reserves and nature areas close to Johannesburg where visitors can see African wildlife at its natural best. It brings deep appreciation of why we need to create a sustainable society. It brings a fresh appreciation of the natural order of things. And the Kruger is always an option!
A first sighting of the Big Five is the experience of a lifetime.

Capetown

No visitor to South Africa will want to miss out on a visit to Cape Town. It is a friendly city of great natural beauty, and provides a different insight into South African diversity. A trip up iconic Table Mountain features on every seasoned traveller’s bucket list. No one will want to miss out on a visit to Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world

Exchange Rate

The South African Rand is notoriously weak in comparison to other currencies. Regenesys Business School offers superb value for money. The learning experience is on a par with US and European Business Schools. The good news for parents of Indian students is that Indian rupees will buy a whole lot more excellent education in South Africa than it will in North America and Europe.

A Regenesys Business School degree is a shrewd investment.
