What is STP?

The Student Technology Programme (STP) was negotiated with various technology vendors by the Association of South African University Directors of Information Technology (ASAUDIT) within Higher Education institutions.

This national initiative currently offers affordable deals on tablets and laptops to staff and students from public universities in South Africa who have agreed to participate in the STP. Further deals will be negotiated and added to the product offerings from time to time.

Which vendors were selected?


Acer Education (selling Acer products), First Technology (selling Dell products) and Pinnacle Africa (selling Lenovo products) have each made some models available, ranging from a basic entry level to high end laptop.


Azpen, Dell, Proline and Samsung are offering Android and Windows tablets ranging from smaller 7 inch to top-range 10.1 inch models.
