2. University of South Africa

The University of South Africa (UNISA) is one of the oldest universities in the country and is the largest open-distance learning institution in the world. It is well known for its flexible learning options and its ability to provide students with the opportunity to pursue a wide range of courses. UNISA is also home to numerous research centres and institutes, including the Centre for Research on Evaluation, Science and Technology (CREST).

The University of South Africa (Unisa), the only higher education institution to carry the name of the country, is the people’s university in every sense of the word. Throughout its history, spanning 15 decades,

Unisa has responded to the developments brought about by changing times, the needs of a developing country and society at large, and an ever-evolving higher education environment. This was achieved through ongoing and dynamic transitioning. Unisa’s journey has been one of continuous growth and transformation, aimed at shaping tomorrow through education.

Unisa’s roots (and indeed that of higher education in South Africa) date back to 1873 when the University of the Cape of Good Hope was founded, initially functioning as an examining body for higher education.

In 1916, the university changed its name to the University of South Africa and in 1918 it relocated to Pretoria. In 1946, it became one of the first public universities in the world to teach exclusively by means of distance education.

Today, Unisa is widely recognised as a leading comprehensive, open, distance and e-Learning (CODeL) university. The university has more than 370 000 students and is the largest university in South Africa and on the African continent and one of the world’s mega-universities.

With offices across South Africa and students from 109 countries, Unisa has an extensive geographical footprint and global reach.

3. Tshwane University of Technology

Our University was formed in 2004 following the merger of three technikons. Our merger aimed at redressing the inequalities of the past by providing access to all our communities and an academic home for all our students.
In that short time, we have grown into the largest contact University in South Africa, with seven faculties offering programmes in science, engineering and technology, business and management, education, humanities and the arts.
We have been ranked by Times Higher Education (THE) in 2018 as one of the top 1000 universities globally and our programmes in engineering in the top 300. THE has also ranked us eighth in South Africa. In 2017,
University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP) ranked us as the number one University of Technology in Africa.
Equally important, as a people’s university our moral purpose is to be the embodiment and custodian of our people’s aspirations. This strategic intent is foregrounded by the outcomes of our Transformation Summit held in 2017 and subsequent Transformation Framework, which was informed by national, continental and global developmental goals.
Our University provides an academic home for all our people, especially for those who are at the margins of society, rural and urban, by maximising access to higher education to address our triple challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment.
We adopt a decolonial position as our programmes aim to have a liberating effect by ensuring that our learning becomes a continuum of creation, innovation and technology transfer to serve the aspirations of our communities.
Anchored in the African philosophy of Ubuntu, we are a caring and compassionate University and a site of ideation, intellectualism and engaged scholarship to effect social change and transformation.
