The University of Johannesburg (UJ) is a result of a merger between the Rand Afrikaans University (RAU), the Technikon Witwatersrand (TWR) and the Soweto and East Rand campuses of Vista University. The University has four campuses and boasts world-class, internationally recognised academic programmes.
Based in southern Gauteng, Vaal University of Technology draws students from all regions of the country as well as 25 other countries. It is one of the largest universities of technology in South Africa, with an annual enrolment of close to 20 000 students.
TUT was established in 2004, merging the former Technikon Northern Gauteng, Technikon North-West and Technikon Pretoria. At the time of the merger, the uniquely South African institutional designation of “technikon” was dropped in favour for the internationally accepted “university of technology” designation. TUT annually enrols approximately 60 000 students.
More commonly known as Wits University and situated in the city of Johannesburg. The university is ranked number 2 in South Africa and over the years has become internationally recognised for academic excellence and extensive research activities.
University of Pretoria currently has more than 50 000 students and has become one of the leading higher education institutions on the continent and indeed, in the world. It offers courses in both English and Afrikaans and has transformed from a mainly white, Afrikaner institution to a multicultural, multiracial university that offers quality education to South Africans from all walks of life.
