It is the vision of the University of Johannesburg (UJ) to be a premier, embracing, African city university offering a mix of vocational and academic programmes that advance freedom, democracy, equality and human dignity as high ideals of humanity through distinguished scholarship, excellence in teaching, reputable research and innovation, and through putting intellectual capital to work.

Vibrant, multicultural and dynamic, the University of Johannesburg shares the pace and energy of cosmopolitan Johannesburg, the city whose name it carries. Proudly South African, the university is alive down to its African roots, and well-prepared for its role in actualising the potential that higher education holds for the continent’s development.

UJ is the first and only African university admitted to the highly respected consortium of 28 research-intensive universities in the world, Universitas 21 – an important endorsement of the growing international stature of UJ. The phenomenal success story of the university is one that has surprised critics and won over sceptics. Being an institution that prides itself in its accessible excellence, after only nine years UJ has established itself as an institution of global excellence and world-class stature. During its first five years of existence, UJ doubled its accredited research output and increased its number of distinguished South African Research Chairs from none to seven. This remarkable achievement was reached well ahead of the target set for 2015. The 2010 research outcome was the result of UJ’s desire, during the initial period, to establish UJ as a thoroughly research-focused university.
