MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE SINCE 2008

Every day we help our students identify their dreams, build up their confidence to believe they can achieve them – and give them the skills and guidance they need to make those dreams come true. We believe everyone has potential – and we never stop getting excited about helping our students realise theirs! Come and see ELMI for yourself. We’d love to show you around.

A college with soul

We truly care about each of our students and where they are headed in life. It’s a little cheesy, but you’re not just a number here – you really are family. Unlike huge, impersonal colleges, at ELMI you can expect a friendly, caring, safe and attractive environment. We have a number of tools to help you figure out which careers will suit your personality best.

Study at ELMI and you’ll get excellent value for money, and the highest quality education possible for your fees. Plus we run loads of fun events, so our students get the full campus experience!

So many study options!

From graphic design to IT, finance, business, and corporate training – there’s bound to be something for you!

Study full time if you can, or fit your studies around your job if you’re already working with classes after hours. You don’t even need a Matric to start some of our courses.

And of course, most of our courses are fully accredited, registered, and many are endorsed by some seriously heavyweight brands and companies!

Innovative, real-world learning

Our amazing team is passionate about inspiring, motivating and educating young people with love and care. We go out of our way to make sure learning is more than just a classroom experience. Our lecturers create first hand, real world, innovative challenges that give students practical skills, as well as theoretical knowledge.

In 2011 we started partnering with locally owned businesses. These ongoing collaborations inspire our students through relevant work experience, and prepare them for the working world.

Gareth Nash

Head of Academics

With a wealth of both academic and business experience under his belt, Gareth Nash is a recent acquisition to the ELMI team. He has joined ELMI as the new Head of Academics.

Having worked in academia both nationally and internationally, Gareth’s experience encompasses working with undergraduate and postgraduate students within multiple disciplines, including Commerce, Science, Law, Education and the Humanities. His focus within these disciplines has been on the design and development of curricula with a view to ensuring that students receive the most up-to-date and appropriate education. Most recently, Gareth was the head of the Academic Literacy programme for Commerce Foundation students at the University of KwaZulu-Natal – a programme he designed and initiated in 2007.

A graduate of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Gareth is keenly aware of the role that education plays in the South African landscape. This, coupled with extensive business experience, means that he has the best interests of the students at heart and is driven by two questions: what more can we do for our students and how can we do it better?
