Mode of delivery

Optimi College offers three learning options for students: Distance learning, Digital learning and Face-to-Face learning.


Distance learning:


Optimi College offers distance learning courses that provide students with the flexibility to access education from anywhere in the world, without the need to physically attend classes in a lecture hall or on campus. With our distance learning option, students receive training through a variety of mediums, including hardcopy study material and textbooks plus recorded lectures that can be viewed online. Additionally, all learning materials are conveniently accessible through online resources.


Embrace the convenience and flexibility of our distance learning courses, where you can receive study materials delivered via courier, gain online access to valuable resources, and submit assignments online. All you need is a laptop and internet access to embark on your educational journey.


Digital learning:


Optimi College recognises the importance of flexibility in education, which is why we offer a digital learning experience designed to accommodate students’ busy schedules. This learning method is perfect for individuals seeking a healthy work-life balance or those who prefer studying from the comfort of their own homes, as long as they have the necessary technology and internet access. With the advancements in technology, students now have access to online resources and tools to support their studies. For some of our digital learning courses, we also provide students with the option to join live sessions or watch tutorials at their own convenience.


Face-to-Face learning:


At Optimi College, we recognise that some learners prefer a traditional classroom learning experience led by a dedicated lecturer. Our face-to-face classroom courses provide the opportunity to interact with peers, fostering a structured and engaging learning environment.


Located at our Tygervalley campus in Bellville, Cape Town, our face-to-face classes are currently available exclusively for IT-related courses. These fields of specialisation include Software Developer (Full Stack) and Network Engineer.


Experience the benefits of in-person instruction and enhance your understanding and retention of course content at Optimi College’s Tygervalley campus.
