EU and African Union


The University of Johannesburg is an institution that embodies the core principles of critical thinking and meaningful collaboration, anchored in Africa and dynamically shaping the future. Through these principles, we attract the best minds from around the world to engage with leaders in reimagining the future. 

UJ’s students, mentors, teachers, and thought leaders are making a difference, not only in South Africa but across the African continent and the world. With exposure to world-class facilities, proven structures of support and award-winning academic staff – all geared towards feeding imaginations in a safe, equal opportunity environment – we are seeding the world with a new generation who will lead with vision, with creativity, and with the power to see far beyond our present. As a respected research institution, the university is leading the new wave of thought through a multi-disciplinary approach to practical solutions that will make a real difference, from exploring the positive use of artificial intelligence, process automation, and smart cities; to developing nanotechnology capable of removing pollutants from water. We are investigating the sustainability of global resources through earth sciences, looking at our past to learn about our future.
