Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology


Richfield is a leading larger private higher education institution in South Africa with a rich history, spanning almost 30 years, in the provision of education and training. Throughout Richfield’s existence, technology has been at the centre of the development of our curriculum, as has been the use of the latest hardware and software to support our contact and distance-learning students.

Since its inception, Richfield has primarily offered undergraduate programmes in various fields – among them, commerce, IT and Public Management. In 2019 Richfield expanded their offerings to include a suite of IT and business-related postgraduate programmes.
