Two types of course

An Attendance Course in Conveyancing Practice for those who prefer to receive study guidance by attending lectures in preparation for the conveyancing examination.

A Self-study Deeds Course for those who prefer to study on their own, without attending any lectures.

Features of the Attendance Course

Lectures are offered in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein.

A special discount is available on the registration fee for people who register early.

English learners may attend Afrikaans lectures but receive English notes, and vice versa, on condition that these learners specifically indicate this requirement when they register.

If you have previously registered for the Self-study Deeds Course and own your own set of notes and would like to attend the lectures, or if you previously attended the course and want to do it again, you are welcome to contact us for a quotation to register for the Attendance Course.

Features of the Self-study Course

You can register at any time. There is no cut-off date for registration. The only target date is the examination date.
