With 57 departments organized into six faculties and the multidisciplinary Centre for Higher Education Development, the university has approximately 29,000 to 30,000 students studying liberal arts, pure sciences, and professional degrees ranging from bachelor’s degrees (NQF 7) to doctoral degree levels (NQF 10).
