Welcome to the website of the University of Venda, known as Univen.
Your interest in our University is most welcome and very much appreciated.
We are committed to excellence and are working towards becoming a quality driven,
financially sustainable, comprehensive University.
Our goal is to develop responsible citizens who will impact positively on
the growth and development of South Africa. Univen has the necessary human resource
capital and is ready to serve as the engine that drives the regional growth
and development strategy in South Africa in general and the Limpopo Province
As part of the restructuring of higher education in South Africa, Univen was
mandated by government to become a comprehensive University. This entails a
fundamental academic planning exercise that involves the re-engineering of our
core business. Committed to quality and excellence, we offer a diverse range
of academic, professional and career focused programmes – both on undergraduate
and postgraduate level - that are relevant to the job market. These range from
Agriculture, Health Sciences, Mathematical and Natural Sciences, Law, Human
and Social Sciences, Management Sciences, Environmental Sciences to Education.
Thank you for visiting our website and I hope you found it helpful. Please
feel free to contact us at any time for additional information or assistance.
With best wishes
