The History of Pearson Institute of Higher Education

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. As part of the company’s organic growth in the direct delivery of learning, Pearson South Africa has acquired the Pearson Institute of Higher Education (formerly known as Midrand Graduate Institute) and CTI Education Group. Today, this group has 12 campuses, over 8 000 students and 35 different nationalities represented across our campuses in South Africa.
