The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in most South Africans working from home – and staying home after hours. Why not put the free time you have from this self-imposed quarantine to good use, by studying online.

A number of platforms offer free courses across a range of subjects, giving you an opportunity to acquire new skills or just pursue an interest you have.
