Our accountancy students consistently achieve excellent pass rates in the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants qualifying exam – over the last decade Wits has on average dominated the top ten positions in the qualifying exam. Wits Commerce graduates are men and women with entrepreneurial spirit who are able to think analytically, make decisions and solve problems.


The Oliver Schreiner School of Law is one of Africa’s oldest law schools and one of the most influential legal institutions in South Africa.
Wits Law students learn communication skills, both oral and written, and the ability to analyse and solve problems logically, to argue from a position of weakness or strength and to work under pressure. A law degree equips you for many exciting careers in the legal profession, in industry and commerce, or in government and the diplomatic corps.
