We’re three weeks into the University Application series. This week, we covered all of the big universities in South Africa’s fastest province: Gauteng. While there are many other FET Colleges, these five ‘big’ universities in the province might be of the most interest to you. This week we looked at: the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), the University of South Africa (UNISA), the University of Pretoria (UP/Tuks), the University of Johannesburg (UJ) and the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).
