Welcome to North-West University (NWU)
In the spotlight
Forty-three years ago, the youth of South Africa made their voices heard and changed the course of our history. Youth Day is a day on which we commemorate and acknowledge the role that youth played in the past and how they remain important role-players in shaping the development and growth of our country. See how the NWU celebrates youth month.

The spirit of the university is reflected in the way we unlock the future for people and enable them to make their dreams come true. This spirit runs across all our activities and operations, from our academic offerings and research to our student body, community engagement and sports achievements.
A united institution
The NWU is committed to function as a unitary, integrated multi-campus university that will enable equity, redress and globally competitive teaching and research across all campuses.
