Here’s how much the University of Johannesburg’s new online courses cost

The University of Johannesburg recently launched four new online-only courses on top of the four master’s degree programmes it unveiled in 2017.

Towards the end of last year, UJ launched four online-only master’s degree programmes – a first-of-its-kind for South Africa – with the university adding two bachelor degree courses and two advanced diploma courses to its portfolio.

The four new additional online programmes included:

  • Bachelor of Commerce in International Accounting
  • Bachelor of Human Resource Management
  • Advanced Diploma in Financial Markets and
  • Advanced Diploma in Transportation Management.
