    The University of Johannesburg (UJ), one of the largest, multi-campus, residential universities in South Africa, seeks to achieve the highest distinction in scholarship and research within the higher education context. Born from the merger between the former Rand Afrikaans University (RAU), the Technikon Witwatersrand (TWR) and the Soweto and the East Rand campuses of Vista University in 2005, the University of Johannesburg’s unique academic architecture reflects a comprehensive range of learning programmes, leading to a variety of qualifications, from vocational and traditional academic to professional and postgraduate, across the four campuses –Auckland Park Kingsway, Auckland Park Bunting Road, Doornfontein and Soweto.

    I am an engineering student at UJ.

    The quality of the education is top drawer stuff, the facilities are excellent and all of this at an affordable price.

    The staff at the faculty of engineering and the built environment are extremely helpful and are always more than happy to help.

    I graduated at UJ and I had been excited to study at UJ until the administration managed to put me off doing another postgraduate degree. UJ lecturers (some of them) need to learn to understand students...Uj, we are happy you have a good accounting foundation...

    I was a student at one of the Residences at Auckland Park Kings way campus. The quality of the accommodation was terrible and much can be done to improve the facilities.

    The other aspects of UJ are great! I love the design the university is currently following and i hope they could improve the old residences to the standard of the new residences.

    Thank you

    The set up that they have for their BSc with Computer Science is one that I consider the best. When their students for Computer Science honours students are compared to the rest of the country's universities, they come out tops.
