Wits University, one of Africa’s premier research universities, understands the need to be innovative in this digital age and offers postgraduate students a broad spectrum of opportunity in a wide variety of fields. The focus is on sustaining globally competitive standards of excellence in learning, teaching and research.
Our postgraduate students are afforded a platform to engage in real life research issues that affect not only the surrounding communities but the country, continent and the global village at large. Higher degree qualifications at Wits result from more mature teaching and learning requirements as well as a deeper and more academic focus. Wits is strategically located in Johannesburg, a worldclass city and there are therefore countless opportunities for research students to engage with and present solutions that will contribute to our country’s knowledge base and build our future.
Staff and postgraduate students are actively encouraged to push the boundaries of knowledge by tackling fundamental research questions, producing publications of the highest quality, and sustaining the interplay between teaching and research. Wits is committed to ensuring that a new generation of researchers is drawn from a diverse range of young people.
