Welcome to Rhodes University – Dr. Sizwe Mabizela, Rhodes University Vice Chancellor
Welcome to Rhodes University! The institution was established in 1904 and has a longstanding reputation for academic achievement. With just over 8200 students, Rhodes University is a small institution that stands out for having great postgraduate success rates, one of the highest undergraduate pass and graduation rates in South Africa, and the highest research output per academic staff member.
There are six faculties at Rhodes University: business, education, humanities, law, pharmacy, and science. It grants undergraduate and graduate degrees in many different subjects, including accountancy, journalism, drama, mathematics, zoology, pharmacy, and law. Particularly in the disciplines of journalism and media studies, African languages and literature, and environmental science, the university has a great reputation for academic quality. Several notable graduates, such as politicians, business executives, journalists, and academics, have come from there
This is a testimony to the quality of students that Rhodes attracts and of academic provision, and to the commitment of Rhodes staff to student development and success. Of our more than 8000 students, 30% are postgraduates and over 18% are international students from 54 countries around the world, making Rhodes a dynamic and cosmopolitan knowledge institution.
Students are able to undertake an extensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the faculties of Humanities, Science, Commerce, Pharmacy, Law, and Education. With the most favorable academic staff-to-student ratio among South African universities, Rhodes students are guaranteed easy access to academics and close supervision.
The University takes pride in its motto, Where Leaders Learn, and produces graduates who are knowledgeable intellectuals, skilled professionals, and critical, caring, and compassionate citizens who can contribute to economic and social development and an equitable, just, and democratic society.
Almost 50% of Rhodes students and the majority of undergraduates live in University residences, while there are also special residences for postgraduates. Through a well-established structure of wardens, sub-wardens, and residence committees, the residences play an important role in overall student development, including developing leadership skills.
Numerous clubs and societies provide extensive opportunities for students to participate in a variety of intellectual, social, cultural, and sports activities and further develop valuable skills. Rhodes University looks to the future with confidence, secure that as indawo yolwazi (a place of knowledge) and through the pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, and community engagement it produces outstanding graduates that are sought after and makes a vital contribution to human and social development.
