The new University of KwaZulu-Natal was formed in 2004 as result of the merger between the Unversity of Natal (established in 1910) and the University of Durban-Westville (founded in the 1960s).
Bringing together these two rich histories, UKZN was among the first batch of SA institutions to merge in accordance with government’s restructuring plans.
With five campuses located in Durban and Pietermartizburg, UKZN’s vision is to be the premier university of African scholarship.
This means that knowledge and research must arise from interfacing with our “local context”, which has many geographical, socio-political and economic dimensions.
