Wits University is taking the lead in reimagining trendy Braamfontein to further our contribution in delivering high level scarce skills for the global knowledge economy. Our location in Johannesburg, the economic and industrial heartland of the African continent, places us in good stead to interact with the public and private sectors, civil society and other social agents to effect meaningful change in society.
From discovering what lies beneath the earth's surface to saving lives through better health care systems, Wits is on the ground making a difference. We have over 50 active projects around Africa and the University is represented globally through our partnerships, collaborations, staff, student exchanges and our alumni. Wits University is also the co-founder of the African Research Universities Alliance.
With more than 85% of our research published in accredited international journals, we encourage cross-disciplinary research and collaborate with the best researchers and institutions across the globe. From telling the story of life to finding solutions to deep level mining problems, from searching for the Higgs boson at CERN to understanding the complexities of human interaction, Wits is at the forefront.
Wits University produces more millionaires than any other university in SA. Our graduates have gone on to become global leaders in every field of endeavour. Through their civic engagement, they have built cultural institutions, fought injustices and made their communities better places to live in. Our alumni office provides access to exclusive services, networks and news. There are immense benefits in being part of Wits.
Wits University provides a wealth of academic, cultural and sporting options for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Our support programmes provide a bridging gap between high school and university by providing a support structure aimed at empowering and equipping first year university students with the necessary and essential skills to navigate successfully through university.
