UP is one of the world’s top universities and occupies a space in the top 1,9% of universities in the world. We rank highly for Africa across several ranking measurement systems which take into consideration a range of factors. These rankings fluctuate regularly per subject or field of study and are dependent on the ranking authority that is issuing the list or the geo-political location of the institution being reviewed.
What is important to remember is that UP is deeply rooted in its commitment to overall excellence and to finding African solutions to global concerns. We believe that our value is measured not only by our impressive rankings and expertise, but also by our unique offerings and value-added support and training programmes for students. We offer real-world skills application and custom-made training to accelerate job placement, entrepreneurship and job creation, civic impact and social and cultural understanding, which are crucial to our students’ successes and addressing South Africa’s immediate needs.
