The Faculty of Science attracts full-time and part-time postgraduate students from South Africa, Africa and abroad through formal international linkages and exchange programmes. 

Over 95% of our academic staff is in possession of a PhD or equivalent degree and about 70% of our scientists are acknowledged by the National Research Foundation as researchers of high international standing. This ensures that our postgraduate students participate in research teams that can compete with the best in the world and is one of the reasons why the Faculty appears within the top 300 universities in the category Natural Sciences of the QS World University Ranking list.
