Our research focuses on South Africa and the southern African region, but also looks​ beyond to the wider scholarly community. UJ plays its part in nurturing citizens and scholars who are anchored in their localities and nations but who can assert themselves confidently in a world of increasingly interconnected research.

UJ has benefited from a large pool of researc​hers bringing together various fields of expertise and research focus areas. The University provides the ideal ground for interdisciplinary research with a growing number of NRF-rated researchers choosing to settle on our campuses. Six of our researchers are currently A-rated – all of whom are recognised as world leaders in their field. UJ is also home to a growing number of research centres.
