Midrand Graduate Institute (MGI) is registered with the Department of Education and its programmes are accredited by the Council on Higher Education. In addition to offering its own registered and accredited programmes, MGI has, for many years, been an official UNISA tuition centre where students receive on-campus, face-to-face tuition towards UNISA programmes.
Midrand Graduate Institute was first known as Midrand Campus. Established in 1989, the institution soon developed an outstanding reputation for its innovative and dynamic hands-on approach to teaching and learning, producing graduates who are competitive, skilled, and in demand in the working environment.
Building on the successes of Midrand Campus, later known as Midrand University, the institution soon attained higher status in the private higher education environment by developing into Midrand Graduate Institute (MGI) – one of the first private university-level, degree-conferring institutions in Southern Africa. Besides offering its own degrees and diplomas, MGI has a long history of providing top quality tuition geared towards the qualifications of other institutions.
At MGI, we believe in building a healthy learning environment by offering individual academic attention for students to reach their full potential and an exciting range of social, cultural, and recreational activities. Our Student Affairs Unit is on campus to provide support and service to all our students. MGI students gain practical experience through our guest speaker programmes, practical assignments, field trips, and various projects such as the Business Advice Centre and Law Clinic. Our sporting facilities include basketball, netball, football, a swimming pool, tennis, and volleyball.
We wish you all the best with your studies, and trust that you will have an unforgettable experience at MGI.
