The University of Pretoria has a renewed focus on work-readiness of graduates and a Ready for Work initiative has been launched to prepare graduates to be ready for work by providing training for additional skills (including entrepreneurship) over and above academic competence, as well as exposure to work experience. A high value is placed on self-actualisation skills that students can acquire during their undergraduate studies. This ensures that UP graduates are competitive when entering the job market and reflect the attributes, capabilities and dispositions to work successfully anywhere they may find themselves.
