Information for Parents

Welcome to the University of Pretoria. This is where your child/ward will receive the best possible education with value-added benefits which are sure to assist them in the world beyond university through work readiness programmes and entrepreneurial training. As a caring institution, we have made it our priority to ensure that every student is able to learn in a way that is best suited to them as individuals with their own learning style. Students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a variety of ways such as research assignments, practicals, tutorials or community-based activities. Our students are taught in traditional classroom lectures, but also have access to online resources which they can use to revise and boost their knowledge. We are at the cutting edge of scientific research, but we are never too busy to assist our students or point them in the right direction.

The safety and well-being of our students is important to us. Students have access to a range of counselling and health facilities. We strive to make our campuses and surrounding areas as safe as possible to allow for you and your child/ward to have relative peace of mind. Each of our campuses has their own unique character and beauty and is equipped with state of the art resources and facilities to ensure that your child/ward will have everything at their disposal to graduate on time and ensure their own success through effective time management and by working consistently throughout the year to maintain a good average.
