From the mountain vistas of the Drakensberg to the wild reaches of Maputaland, KwaZulu-Natal is a province of contrasts. The University of KwaZulu-Natal offers prospective students the choice of five campuses, each with its own distinctive character.
Formerly the Edgewood College of Education before its incorporation in 2001, the Edgewood campus in Pinetown is the University’s primary site for teacher education and the home of the University’s School of Education.
Durban is a vibrant coastal city renowned for its beaches, coastal resorts and the Moses Mabhida Stadium. The city is also a major South African port. The magnificent game reserves and estuaries of Maputaland, north of Durban, are a favourite getaway for staff and students alike.
Medical School has been producing quality doctors for 54 years. Founded in 1950 as a “black faculty” in a “white institution”, for most of its history, the School has been synonymous with the struggle for democracy and racial equality.
Pietermaritzburg is located in the centre of the scenic Natal Midlands, close to numerous nature reserves and parks, only one hour’s drive from Durban and two hours’ drive from the Drakensberg. The city has a rich architectural heritage, with many fine examples of Victorian and Edwardian buildings.
Located within an environmental conservancy about 8 kilometres from the CBD of Durban and Pinetown, the Westville campus combines state of the art infrastructure with beautiful natural surroundings. The campus’s Hindu temple and an Islamic place of worship reflect its rich multicultural history.
