Becoming an NWU student

Opportunities open up when you enrol as a student of the North-West University. Besides an excellent tertiary education, we offer you a vibrant student life and plenty of scope to develop your talents in sport, arts and culture, community service and student leadership.

Another advantage of studying here is the high level of support available to you, not just in our lecture rooms but also in the form of financial aid for your studies if you require it, counselling to help you make the right study and career choices, and access to a range of confidential health and wellness services.

Accommodation at our student residences on all three campuses is comfortable, convenient, well organised and safe. Standard facilities include 24-hour security, student restaurants, television rooms, lounges, recreation rooms and computer rooms, along with fully equipped laundry and ironing rooms. All residences are an easy walk away from the NWU’s academic, administrative and sports facilities.

Another advantage of studying at the NWU is that our fees are affordable and offer great value for money. However, bursaries and scholarships are available to academically deserving students who require financial assistance.
