The NWU officially came into being on 1 January 2004 as part of the South African government’s plan to transform higher education. The former University of North-West merged with the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education. A third party was the Sebokeng Campus of another mainly black university, Vista, whose staff and students were incorporated.
Research Focus Areas:
Career Centre - While we strive to stay engaged locally, it is our purpose to remain relevant nationally and be recognised internationally in everything we do.
