Growing numbers of South African parents are looking at international education opportunities for their children, but this does not come cheap.

“While the cost of studying abroad is high, the return on investment is much higher. Just as top schools carry prestige and sway for employment in South Africa, so too do globally top-ranked universities. The average starting salary for a Harvard graduate is around R70 000 per month.
