Educor Students Transfer your studies

Educor Students: Transfer your studies from uncertainty to stability with the IMM Graduate School.

Following the news in March 2024 of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) deregistration of four Educor institutions, marketing and supply chain students of the affected institutions may be thinking of moving their studies to a more reliable and stable institution like the IMM Graduate School.

Transferring your academic credits between tertiary institutions can be a challenging and stressful process, but the IMM Graduate School is here to ensure you can make that transition hassle-free.

If you are currently a marketing or supply chain student at City Varsity (Pty) Ltd, Damelin (Pty) Ltd, Icesa City Campus (Pty) Ltd and Lyceum College (Pty) Ltd, studying the same qualification offered by the IMM Graduate School, you can now easily transfer this qualification…with the added benefit of receiving your first semester free of charge (for a limited time only and subject to terms and conditions).
