University of Johannesburg


The University of Johannesburg (UJ) offers postgraduate-level programmes in eight faculties (including one college):

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. This membership gives UJ staff and students the opportunity to collaborate with many of the world's Top 100 universities.

Aspiring to greater heights in achieving an international reputation for academic and research distinction, UJ intends investing more than R600 million over the next seven years into six Flagship Research Institutes designed to enrich and deepen its academic profile through research innovation. The strategy aims to transform UJ into a pan-African epicentre of critical intellectual inquiry and scholarship. The Flagship Research Institutes, within UJ’s eight faculties, aim to influence the international search for intelligent solutions to the grand challenges of our time.

UJ postgraduate students are eligible for funding opportunities, some of which are administered by the Postgraduate Funding Support section of the Postgraduate School on the Auckland Park Kingsway Campus. Funding opportunities include: bursaries, scholarships, and fellowships.
