Postgraduate Studies at the Potchefstroom Campus
Remember the Postgraduate Open Day!
At the Potchefstroom Campus of the NWU we strive toward becoming a research-driven campus, where excellence in teaching-learning and research are mutually reinforced. We have eight faculties, including Arts, Natural Sciences, Theology, Law, Economic and Management Sciences, Education Sciences, Engineering, and Health Sciences, and 23 innovative research entities, centres and platforms, which produce relevant and focused research of the highest quality.
At the Potchefstroom Campus of the NWU our objective is to educate and empower our postgraduate students by providing quality programmes, ensuring well-educated graduates who are able to think critically and laterally, and serve the country and its people. We also contribute towards the strengthening of our communities through the work of our researchers and postgraduate students.
We have over 100 highly ranked top researchers across the many disciplines that offer postgraduate programmes, as part of the National Research Foundation system of rated researchers. Our Postgraduate students can therefore interact with scholars who are internationally recognised in their respective fields of expertise. They also have access to state-of-the-art research equipment, as well as a vast number of information resources from our Ferdinand Postma Library.
We also provide excellent bursaries and support services to our postgraduate students.
