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 for you!

We understand professionals and more mature adults who need their studies to fit in with their lifestyle or career. We offer part-time and after-hours degrees, certificate courses, and programmes in corporate governance and administration that are internationally recognised qualifications, highly respected by top private and public sector organisations.

Lectures are held in the evenings (17h30-21h00), with certain courses requiring attendance on Saturday mornings (09h00-13h00). 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 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.

Wits Plus provides world class facilities and we have our own Wits Plus building on the University of Witwatersrand, Braamfontein West Campus where our part-time students benefit from a one-stop administration service, access to a 30 seat computer laboratory and refreshment facilities. Lectures are given 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.
