Is STADIO a private university?
In South Africa, registered private institutions that offer higher education may not call themselves private universities, and are referred to as private higher education institutions. In the future, once legislation allows for it, STADIO will apply for private university status.
Why was STADIO established?
Most private higher education institutions in South Africa have a narrow focus, usually offering a range of qualifications in a single field. LISOF specialised in fashion; Prestige Academy focused on business, IT and design studies; Southern Business School specialised in commerce and law; whilst Embury was a specialist teacher training institution. Also, institutions usually either offer qualifications on a campus or through distance learning.
With the establishment of STADIO, we can now offer students a wide range of qualifications through various modes of delivery, on campus or from where ever you are, with innovative online capability supporting both modes.
Who owns STADIO?
STADIO is owned by STADIO Holdings Limited, an investment holdings company listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). STADIO Holdings started as a subsidiary of the private schooling group Curro Holdings, but STADIO Holdings unbundled from Curro in 2017. STADIO Holdings also owns 100% of AFDA (www.afda.co.za) and 83,9% of Milpark Education (www.milpark.ac.za).
