The University of KwaZulu-Natal(UKZN) was established on 1st January 2004 through the merger between the University of Durban-Westville and the University of Natal. UKZN has 5 campuses with a total student population of over 49000 in 2019 and an academic staff complement of over 1300. At least 14% of full-time academic staff and 18% of postgraduates (Masters & Doctoral) were international in 2019. UKZN offers the full scope of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across a broad range of disciplines. UKZN is a research intensive university and the evaluation of the South African publicly funded universities’ research outputs by the Department of Higher Education placed UKZN in the top position for 2018 research output. UKZN is home to the NIH-funded Centre for AIDS Programme of Research in SA (CAPRISA), the Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI) as well as the the Kwazulu-Natal Research Innovation and Sequencing Platform (KRISP). UKZN is also the hub for the DST-NRF Centre for African Indigenous Knowledge Systems (AIKS). All of this was achieved while UKZN was undergoing a merger and major transformation. UKZN is firmly committed to transformation in its widest sense and, to this end, has developed a Transformation Charter, the objective of which is to lay the foundation for the premier university of African scholarship that is united in and exploits its diversity.
