For the Hermanus Varsity to be sustainable we require sources of revenue to supplement course fees and other income streams, going beyond conventional higher education models, our mission is one of social upliftment. First and foremost, your investment in the HVT is the means to ensure the future of this unique education venture.
Change the lives of individuals and communities

Access to higher education without success is meaningless. HVT will support students financially, based on pre-determined criteria. We will support the well-being of our students and through our tutors, we will support their academic journey. Ultimately we will link students with local industry to unlock employment opportunities.
The physical environment provides the context for learning and social interactions. These interactions lead to involved students, which help build community and vibrant communities contribute to student persistence and academic success.
These are the direct costs involved in delivering the courses provided by accredited institutions that enable students to ’live and learn locally’. They include that of the HVT’s small paid administrative staff and executives, the day-to-day costs of running the organization and operating costs associated with the building and facilities.
