Faculty of Natural Sciences

Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Faculty of Natural Sciences. We offer a wide range of highly acclaimed programmes at undergraduate and graduate levels. Our graduates find employment in the private sector and with government and there is renewed effort by the faculty to guide our graduates to create their own businesses and remain self-reliant. The faculty makes every effort to ensure that your stay with us is as comfortable as possible. You will meet fellow students and staff coming from different parts of the country and interestingly also others coming from other countries other than South Africa. You will learn to live and work in unison with all these people and it is this universality of people, cultures and knowledge that constitutes a university. I assure you that your stay with us will be an enjoyable one.

We have a Science Student Society, a grouping of our young, friendly and hardworking students who are ready to welcome you and work with you throughout your stay with us.

As you may be aware, our government has prioritised among other disciplines Mathematics and Science as focus areas for development. Therefore, the Faculty of Natural Sciences falls within this focus and you should be proud to be part of this exceptional group of people who are passionate about mathematics and scientific innovation, the cornerstones of our economy and development. By the time you leave our faculty you shall be well trained and skilled to face the challenges of the work environment.
