iQ Academy was originally established in 2006 as a small department of Centurion Academy, with the purpose of improving student employability through business short courses. With the success of our students and a desire to offer an expanded programme range, we exited the Centurion Academy umbrella in 2012 and we merged with Fernwood Business College (Pty) Ltd and launched as a new private tertiary institution called “iQ Academy (Pty) Ltd”.
We’ve achieved a lot since 2006, and there’s more on the horison
Over the years we have built a strong reputation for academic excellence and purposeful education in the field of business and commerce studies. Our focus on cutting edge eLearning strategies has positioned us as leaders in distance learning, offering our students accessible, purposeful, connected learning.
Our values, your future
Empowering students with independence
Understanding the reality that our students face on a daily basis, drives us to create education that truly makes a difference in people’s lives. Our courses expand our students’ world, giving them the ability to choose who they can be, where they can go, and what they can achieve for themselves and their communities.
Affordable education driven by the latest technology
In the current economic climate in South Africa, there are often barriers to getting a good education and we work hard to remove them. We ensure that our students have access to high-quality distance education supported by the latest learning technology at affordable and adaptable pricing to accommodate each student’s needs.
Equipping our students with job-ready skills
We have our eyes set on the future; we are implementing e-learning and distance learning strategies to empower our students more holistically for today’s job market. We offer relevant courses through ongoing collaboration with industry to strengthen our students’ position for employment and promotion opportunities.

When it comes to the value of education, sometimes it’s best to hear about it from your peers.
