Top Universities in South Africa

2017 South African University Ranking Updated

This webpage includes our exclusive web metrics based 2017 South African University Ranking , sometime also referred to as League Table, of all Universities in South Africa offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees, such as bachelor degrees, and/or graduate degrees in a traditional, non-distance education format. The aim of our University Ranking, or League Table, is to provide an approximate non-academic ranking of all South African higher education institutions based on the popularity of their official websites. The ranking is not intended to identify the best Universities in South Africa and should not be adopted as the main and only criteria for selecting a higher education institution where to enroll. For a better understanding of our mission and University Ranking Methodology please visit the About Us page. We strongly encourage University representatives to help us by reporting errors or updating, free of charge, their entire University profile.
