Postgraduate Humanities Programmes

At the University of Pretoria (UP), we encourage students to apply for our internationally recognised postgraduate programmes.

As one of Africa’s top research institutions, we are passionate about transdisciplinary research, which means we solve the world’s most pressing concerns in a holistic way rather than in traditional academic silos. At UP, we think big, creatively and out of the box!

We also offer a range of academic and other support to ease your postgraduate journey so that you can make a difference with your knowledge and skills.

UP has some of the best research infrastructure in South Africa in terms of laboratories, libraries and practical sites. We produce cutting-edge research and are among the top producers of research in the country – so #ChooseUP for postgraduate studies in just about any field you can think of.

Use our Virtual Campus to help you decide on a course, or to discover a new field of interest, explore our campuses, and access the information you need to apply. Also browse our Research Matters site for a cross-section of some of our research offerings.

If you already know what you would like to study, explore the course options in each of our faculties to find out more.

Please pay attention to opening and closing dates for applications, as they differ from programme to programme.
