You have made the right choice by choosing Horison and the University of Johannesburg to develop yourself and prepare for the challenging world of work. Your ability to balance academic and other activities will ensure that you enjoy your university experience and develop your potential to the fullest.
Our logo depicts “The dawn of a glowing vibrant new era”. Our motto is “The trendsetters of excellence”. Horison is not just a building, but a “home away from home” that students are proud to be part of.
