We offer a high quality of teaching, learning and research expertise across all nine of our faculties, including South Africa’s only Faculty of Veterinary Science, and Africa’s top Faculty of Law. Our business school, the Gordon Institute of Business Science, is the best on the continent.
UP is more than a picturesque, multi-campus university. It is a way of life that is underpinned by striving for excellence, giving back to society, and living a life that is ethical, respectful and caring towards everyone.
We have world class facilities ranging from laboratories, residences, sports and recreation spaces, to future-focussed, transdisciplinary research spaces such as the Javett-UP Arts Centre, Future Africa and Engineering 4.0 complex.
We support our students and prepare them for life beyond university.
Our graduates are critical, innovative, creative thinkers and change makers that excel in a professional work environment or running their own businesses.
UP alumni are committed to making a difference in their communities by being socially responsible and active citizens.
Our research is focussed on having an impact by finding sustainable solutions to some of Africa and the world’s most pressing concerns.
We firmly believe that our success is measured not only by what we have already achieved, but how the actions we take today impact on our future and the future of the continent as a whole.
At UP, we make today and every day, matter.
