2024 YouTube University Ranking New

Last update: April 2024


What are the most popular South African Universities on YouTube? uniRank answers this question by publishing the 2024 YouTube University Ranking (April 2024 data) of all South African higher-education institutions on YouTube meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate South African higher education-related organization in each country
  • offering at least three-year bachelor's degrees or postgraduate master's or doctoral degrees
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, non-distance education format
Some large Universities adopt multiple YouTube channels associated, for example, with each academic division (i.e. College, Faculty, Department, etc.) and each administrative area (i.e. Admissions, Marketing and Communications, Alumni, etc.). uniRank has chosen the most general institutional YouTube channel for each University.
