International students are, of course, central to internationalisation programmes, and student exchange activities can enhance the international profile of universities, contributing to the internationalisation of academic programmes, collaborative research projects and the diversification of cultures at universities as well as positioning in the rankings. On average, the University of Pretoria has over 4,000 international students annually.

The University of Pretoria enhances its international standing through multifaceted internationalisation programmes. The programmes are facilitated and coordinated by the International Cooperation Division (ICD), which is part of the Department of Research and Innovation. The ICD ensures that the doors of UP are always open to international students, academics, administrative staff, collaborative researchers, policymakers, funding organisations and other stakeholders.

The internationalisation programmes spearheaded by the ICD include:

Students (including short-term exchange programmes, full academic programmes, joint degrees, etc.)

Collaboration and Partnerships (including visiting professors, conference attendance, institutional agreements, etc.)

Current Opportunities (students, academic staff and administrative staff mobility covered)

Fees and Funding

Once you have been accepted to study the programme of your choice, fees are payable.
