Is Wits Plus for you?

If life and your career is a full-time job and you can’t study full-time but you need to learn more to earn more or advance yourself then Wits Plus is definitely for you! 

We understand that professionals and more mature adults need their studies to fit in with their lifestyle or career. Lectures are held in the evenings (17:30-21:00), with certain courses requiring attendance on Saturday mornings (09:00-13:00). All our courses are offered in English.

Wits Plus students are typically over 23 and professionals who are focused on making the most of the benefits of learning but still want the dynamic, spirited experience of studying at the University of the Witwatersrand. If you can manage the dual challenge of successfully combining work and study then Wits Plus offers you:

  • Top lecturers - providing you with a top education;
  • Professional respect;
  • Multiple teaching methods - which provide a variety of study stimuli;
  • An extended study period that is flexible and optimises learning;
  • Smaller classes with peer interaction, enabling networking.
The Wits Plus building is situated on the University of the Witwatersrand's Braamfontein West Campus and offers our part-time students a one-stop administration service, access to a 30 seat computer laboratory as well as refreshment facilities. Lectures are held in purpose-built lecture rooms and there are two libraries on the West Campus, with a professional librarian available on Saturdays to support part-time students. Secure, well-lit parking is provided and part-time students are encouraged to make use of other Wits facilities such as the Health and Wellness Centre, the Counselling and Careers Development Unit (CCDU) and the Writing Centre.
