About the University of Johannesburg:

The University of Johannesburg (UJ) is a diverse, inclusive,University of Johannesburg and transformational institution, with a student population of over 50,000, of which more than 3,000 are international students from 80 countries. This makes UJ one of the largest contact universities in South Africa (SA) from the 26 public universities that make up the higher education system. UJ offers world-class, internationally recognized academic programs based on curricula informed by cutting-edge developments in both undergraduate and postgraduate education that are designed to prepare students for the world of work and for global citizenship.

The University has four campuses: the Auckland Park Bunting Road Campus; the Auckland Park Kingsway Campus; the Doornfontein Campus; and the Soweto Campus.
