Reimagine education through online learning

Wits Plus also offers fully online short courses.

The University of the Witwatersrand recognises the ever-growing need for learning in the corporate professional community – the need for practical skills improvement, workplace-applicable knowledge, professional development, workplace competence and career progression opportunities.

We are responding to our students’ needs and international trends and we now offer a fully online study opportunity – no need to travel to classes after work in the evening! Our courses can be accessed anytime, anywhere, and are fully adaptable to all device types. “Our vision is to make a world-class learning experience available to those who do not have access to face-to-face education opportunities," says Dr Johan Swanepoel, Director of Wits Plus.

Our “integrated learning” experience combines group collaboration, specially curated content and access to a subject matter expert. Get instant feedback, interact with fellow students, check your knowledge with frequent quizzes and let our learning facilitators guide you – all in the comfort and convenience of your own environment and timeline. Successful students receive a Wits-certified Certificate of Competence.

Online courses are offered in partnership with DigitalCampus - listen to an interview on The Gareth Cliff Show in October 2017. 

DigitalCampus offers the most career-oriented online learning in South Africa, combining the renowned strength of Wits University's content with the business acumen and online learning capability of LRMG Performance Agency, one of South Africa's leading performance and learning consulting firms.
