Description of Rhodes University

Rhodes University (Grahamstown, South Africa), founded in 1904, has a well-known academic reputation in its country. Rhodes University (RU) is a small, non-profit, public university with just over 8,200 students enrolled, of whom 18% are foreign students from 54 countries. This confirms that Rhodes is a dynamic educational institution.

Rhodes University has a good reputation among the universities of South Africa, currently ranking fifth in the national rating (and 587 - the world list of the best educational institutions). The institution also statistically shows the best research results per academic officer. Of the more than 8,000 students - 30% are graduate students.

Educational opportunities of the university

Students come here from all over southern Africa, including Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. A large number of foreign students reinforces the cosmopolitan nature of campus life. At the same time, Rhodes can also be described as the most South African university, attracting students from all provinces of the country.

Students have the opportunity to receive a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate diplomas in the faculties of humanities, pharmacy, law and education. Due to the most favorable ratio of the number of teachers and students among universities in South Africa, Rhodes students are guaranteed easy access to teachers, as well as close monitoring of their instruction by teachers.

An important factor in this regard is the small size of the university.

Small classes - this is an increased amount of personal attention of the teacher, as well as more active involvement of students in the work. Due to the high quality of education, the university has earned a worldwide reputation. All academic degrees of Rhodes are internationally recognized.
