Study Opportunities publishes textbooks for the CAT and IT syllabi followed by South African secondary schools.

We have an experienced team of authors who have active and practical teaching experience in the classroom. Study Opportunities projects are a passion for every writer and this team has succeeded in making an ever-changing and often difficult subject manageable and rewarding to learners and teachers alike.

This is why we offer teachers additional support such as exam papers, videos - and a weekly ‘This Week in Tech’ blog.

E-Books: Our books are also available in e-book format. Contact our office for more information.
