"The University of Johannesburg’s (UJ) academic robustness on the national and global standings has been given a significant boost, with UJ now ranked second in South Africa and on the African continent. UJ was previously ranked at position three. This is according to the latest QS World University Rankings, released on Wednesday, 08 June 2022.

"UJ has improved its global ranking yet again, having been ranked at position 412 in the world, an all-time high, climbing 22 places from position 434 in the world in last year’s 2022 edition. This exceptional feat comes on the back of the University’s upward trajectory in the recent Times Higher Education (THE) impact Rankings, in which UJ improved its global ranking and has been ranked overall, in its third showing, at position 69 in the world, out of 1406 ranked institutions – 289 more than last year.

"The QS World University Rankings are based on six performance indicators, related to global academic and employer reputation, research output, and quality, internationalisation, and teaching and learning. Notably, UJ is highly ranked in the International Research Network and International Faculty Ratio categories, with a score of 94.3 and 88.1, respectively.

"Says Professor Tshilidzi Marwala, the Vice-Chancellor and Principal, UJ: “This is a tremendous achievement and recognition for UJ, considering that 2462 institutions were analysed and 1422 institutions were ranked in the 2023 edition of the QS World University Rankings. The latest global rankings reaffirm the fact that our academic programmes remain on par with international standards, as we continue with our mission to position UJ as the international university of choice, anchored in Africa and dynamically shaping the future.”

“These rankings are a wonderful tribute to the sustained work by of our staff and students as we continue to forge ahead and scale new heights.”
