How is Unisa Ranked in The World

Unisa is one of only six South African universities to make the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-16. It was featured in the segment #601-800. The country’s universities lead the African continent, with the University of Cape Town, University of the Witwatersrand, Stellenbosch University, University of KwaZulu-Natal, and University of Pretoria also featuring.

“The THE World University Rankings, now in their 12th year, apply rigorous standards, using tough global benchmarks across all of a global research university’s key missions—teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The results are trusted by students and their families, academics, university leaders and governments. For Unisa to make 601-800 in the world is an outstanding achievement to be celebrated,” the World University Ranking editor Phil Baty said.

The 2015-16 list has been expanded to include a total of 800 universities from 70 countries. The rankings are arguably the world’s most prestigious and widely referenced university rankings. They play a significant role in degree recognition globally and are renowned for being the most balanced and comprehensive system. Carefully calibrated performance indicators provide the most considered comparisons, which have become a major resource not just for students but for academics, university leaders, industry and governments, too.
