jobs description

Where we are - A presence in two provinces The NWU is a multi-campus university with a footprint across two provinces. The Mafikeng and Potchefstroom Campuses are situated in the North-West Province and the Vaal Triangle Campus is in Gauteng. The head office, known as the Institutional Office, is in Potchefstroom, situated near the Potchefstroom Campus. Who we are - A university that inspires innovation through diversity 'Innovation through diversity' is the NWU's pay-off line and it describes the University perfectly.

The staff and students of the Sebokeng Campus of Vista University were also incorporated, adding further to the richness of our heritage. Today, five years after the merger, the NWU is recognised as one of the best-managed and most... innovative universities in South Africa. As conveyed in our pay-off line, Innovation through diversity, we continue to celebrate and encourage multiculturalism, multilingualism and multinationalism.
