Although the Vaal Triangle Campus is the smallest of the NWU’s three campuses, it experienced record growth in the past few years. In 2012, there were 6 100 students. The average pass rate for all modules presented on the Campus was 82,4%, which is higher than the norm set by South Africa’s Department of Education.

 

One reason for the Campus’s consistently strong academic performance is the skills profile of its academic personnel. In all, 84% of its lecturers already have masters or doctoral degrees, and 30% are busy with postgraduate studies.

Academically, the Campus’s focus is on programmes in economic sciences, commerce, information technology, education, social sciences, languages, and the humanities. These are offered by two faculties, namely the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Information Technology and the Faculty of Humanities.
