In line with the recognised trend towards globalisation, the University of Pretoria continues to enhance its international presence by cultivating, sustaining and expanding strategic international partnerships.
International students are central to internationalisation programmes, and student exchange activities contribute to the internationalisation of academic programmes, collaborative research projects and the diversification of cultures at the University. The University of Pretoria has over 4,000 international students annually.
The University of Pretoria’s multifaceted internationalisation programmes are coordinated by the International Cooperation Division (ICD). The ICD ensures that the doors of UP are always open to international students, academics, administrative staff, collaborative researchers, policymakers, funding organisations and other stakeholders.
