The University of Johannesburg shares the pace and energy of cosmopolitan Johannesburg. 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 and South African roots, UJ has established itself as an institution of global excellence and world-class stature.

During its first five years, 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.

The authoritative QS World University Rankings ranked UJ among the top 4% of universities in the world. In 2014, it placed UJ, once again, among the top 1% of universities in the BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – and in sixth position among South African universities.
