Student Support

The Creative Academy is committed to providing a safe and respectful educational environment where every individual student and staff member are nurtured not only academically, but emotionally as well.

We realise that the pressures of tertiary education can lead to anxiety and uncertainty, and therefore encourage open and clear communication between staff and students.

As experienced educators, our staff members are well aware of, and empathetic, towards the academic, emotional and physical challenges associated with tertiary studies and are committed to the students’ academic progress and emotional wellbeing. A dedicated team of experienced staff members is also available to offer support to students who are in need of any form of assistance.

At the Creative Academy we firmly believe in not only creating academic leaders, but also in nurturing the holistic wellbeing of every individual.

The democratically elected Student Representative Council (SRC) functions as the collective voice of our students.

The SRC supports the student body by being available to all students to discuss any grievances and academic or social challenges, and facilitating dialogue between management and students.

The SRC Code of Conduct binds members to a discretionary handling of student support matters in order to ensure that all students are supported with respect and trust. If additional support is required, the SRC will refer students to the relevant staff-member for further support.

At the Creative Academy, every student has a voice.

Student Portal

The Creative Academy’s University Management System (UMS) is a secure, online student information system that provides registered students access to their registration information, course details, timetables, term marks, assessment feedback and academic reports on their individual password-protected Student Portal. The password-protected Parent Portal provides parents and guardians access to monitor the student’s academic performance throughout the year,

Email admin@ctca.co.za should you experience any problems accessing the UMS.


Students have to register for each year of enrolment.
The registration fee is non-refundable and must be paid before classes commence.
All students must be registered by the end of January. A penalty fee of R500 will be charged for registrations after 1 February.
