Finishing Course Study Programme

Printable-Study-Programme (1) One year fulltime READY-FOR-LIFE Gap Year Course

Equilibria’s stimulating study programme deals with almost every dimension of adult life. The programme strives to provide tuition in those essential areas of life not usually taught at university and in those areas that can only be partially taught by parents. Each module is carefully selected for its potential to be applied to real life circumstances.

Equilibria prides itself on an exceptionally high standard of education. Lecturers are handpicked from the best South Africa has to offer. Although each module is underpinned by a sound theoretical base, much emphasis is placed on practical learning experiences. Students are provided with a Study Guide for each module which serves as valuable manuals they can use for the rest of their lives.

Classes are presented in an interactive workshop style with lots of hands-on practical work, excursions, breakaways and fun activities.

The programme concludes with an optional Tour to Europe.
