Contact Learning


Milpark Education has two teaching campuses: one in Cape Town and one in Johannesburg. Each of these cities has its own appeal, and its own attractions.

Campus Life

Full-time and part-time classes

As a contact-learning student, you will attend timetabled classroom sessions on campus. Full-time study requires attendance at classes on campus during office hours. Part-time students usually attend classes after hours or on weekends. If you choose to be a contact learner, this means you will engage with our staff face-to-face.


Milpark’s contact-learning delivery mode operates fully within national guidelines regarding COVID19. Our online delivery programme functions very successfully, and in the event that it is required, we will move our contact-learning classes to our online platform. We have delivered the 2020 academic year via Online learning with great success. Your learning will not be impacted in any way by potential lockdown regulations.

Lecturer Engagement

On our campus, you will experience dynamic and engaged lecturers, equipped to address the individual needs of all our students. Our lecturers are trained to assist students to learn from one another and to share their professional experience. Our students are encouraged to engage with each other, and with the academic staff, to ask questions and give input. Students have online access via the learning platform on myMilpark, and general academic support throughout the year is available, both in person (the lecturer or tutor) and online. myMilpark is an important communication channel between Milpark Education and its students. All documents relevant to students' modules and qualifications can also be accessed on myMilpark.

Counselling Services

We also offer professional counselling services to student who experience problems. Help is available for methods of study, career decisions and planning, and personal problems such as stress management or trauma. All students are invited to make use of this. 

Library, Wi-Fi and Canteen Access

Easy access to the library is available on-site or online from the myCourses home page. Academic writing must be supported by reliable sources, and Milpark provides students with the resources they need for additional reading and research assignments. Students have access to online journal databases (including Emerald, Ebsco and Sabinet) and an eBook library, Scholartext. Students and lecturers create their own virtual bookshelf containing books which can then be read offline. Librarians are available to assist students via email and telephone with help in accessing suitable resources.  

The campus is Wi-Fi enabled, and facilities for studying and group work are available. 

Student relaxation areas are also provided, and an on-campus canteen providing food and drink is easily accessible.
