Top Universities in Gauteng


What are Gauteng’s most famous universities? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this query by releasing the Gauteng University Ranking for 2021, which includes six recognised Gauteng higher-education institutions that fulfill the Topuniversitieslist selection criteria:

  • being chartered, registered, or certified by the relevant South African higher education-related institution, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

Our goal is to create a non-academic League Table of Gauteng’s top universities focused on valid, impartial, and non-influenceable site metrics generated by objective web intelligence sources rather than data submitted by the universities themselves.
