Important information regarding PIHE

On 9 November 2020, we announced that Pearson had signed an agreement sell Pearson Institute of Higher Education (PIHE) to a Consortium of Stellenbosch Graduate Institute (SGI) and EXEO Capital, as part of its strategic focus to simplify Pearson and move away from large scale direct delivery businesses, including bricks and mortar operations in South Africa.  

We are pleased to announce today that the sale has been completed and the change of ownership of PIHE is effective as of Friday, 5 February 2021. This will not affect our academic curriculum nor our qualification accreditation. 

More details about the new name and brand will follow in due course. We remain completely committed to providing credible, quality education to our students, and to positively impact lives through education.
