Pearson Institute of Higher Education, previously known as Midrand Graduate Institute (MGI) was established in 1989 as a private university-level, degree-conferring institution – one of the first of its kind in Southern Africa. We offer 16 undergraduate degrees, lecture-based support for UNISA's Bachelor of Laws degree, three honours degrees and one masters degree within six faculties. All courses are externally examined and moderated by well-qualified academics, public higher institutions, and industry practitioners. All our degrees are registered and accredited.
Every student who enrolls for a 1st year MGI degree or Pre-degree Foundation programme receives a tablet PC, including all course material and electronic textbooks, as part of their course fee. The benefits of TEL include: managing and organising learning easily, access to electronic textbooks (ebooks), being able to learn anywhere, anytime.
