It All Starts Here
“It all starts here” is the North-West University’s (NWU) pay-off line. The NWU was established on 1 January 2004 through the merger of two universities with very different histories, personalities and cultures: the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education and the University of the North-West. The staff and students of the Sebokeng Campus of Vista University were also incorporated, adding further to the richness of our heritage.
The University continues to celebrate and encourage multiculturalism, multilingualism and multinationalism.
Today, the NWU is recognised as one of the best-managed and most innovative universities in South Africa.
NWU has eight faculties;
