UWC is a unique and prestigious destination for research, student and staff mobility, and scholarly connection in South Africa and Africa.
UWC’s focus to deepen mutually beneficial engagements with long-term partners, as well as expand connections with new partners for research is evident with a growing body of co-authored publications. Research outputs with partner institutions, like the University of Missouri and Ghent University, are testimony to our growing stature as an African-centred, research-intensive university.
UWC’s global profile has manifested in opportunities for our staff to jointly pursue research funding, establish joint PhD and other programmes, and foster postgraduate student development with international colleagues. With exposure to an international context, the horizons of possibility expand for our staff and students, ensuring that they are equipped to participate in the global knowledge economy.
