Are these courses only for people wanting to obtain a degree?

I’ve just completed matric. Why should I take a short course?
If your mark for math (for example) isn’t high enough to get into the civil engineering degree course (for example), a short course could boost your final mark so that you do have the credits to get into the degree course.
What are short course certificates really worth?
All courses have been quality assessed and approved through a long process before they’re advertised. This means they’re accredited by the University so even if you’re not planning to enter a degree course, you’ll have a qualification that’s approved by this long-standing institution.
