Career information helpline

Run by Studietrust in partnership with Investec Bank

SMS the word CAREER to 31022 along with your full name & contact number - we will call you within 36 hours OR phone the free helpline during office hours at 0800-21-26-41

The helpline can be accessed from Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 16:00 and is toll-free (from landlines).

Some of the questions addressed are as follows:
o What careers are available to a person with my interests, subject choices and level of academic performance?
o What qualifications give access to these careers?
o Which educational institutions offer programmes towards these qualifications?
o What are the admission requirements for these programmes?
o What alternative admission routes are available if I do not qualify?
o Which bursaries and student loans are available for my chosen programme?

The Helpline operator gives information only. Callers seeking advice that requires a more professional intervention are directed to the relevant advice centres.
