​The University of Johannesburg (UJ) is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a placement among the top four percent in the prestigious QS World University Rankings® for 2014/2015. Being an institution that prides itself in its accessible excellence, UJ has established itself as an institution of global excellence and world-class stature.

Excellence and stature has led to a much more substantial conversation about the desired future of UJ, and the establishment of the new Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS), illustrates the University’s drive to become an international university with the vision to become the Pan-African epicentre of critical and intellectual inquiry.
