Can you study part time at University of Pretoria?

The University of Pretoria has more than 112 years of experience in high-quality teaching and learning and is ranked in the top 500 universities globally.

You can now access our quality academic programmes from anywhere in the world. UPOnline is home to a growing number of part-time, fully online postgraduate programmes.

You can study anywhere, anytime and on any device without the need to travel to a campus for classes or pay for accommodation. You can further your studies while you work, and with UP behind your name, become even more employable and enjoy greater career prospects. All you need is a stable internet connection to access your modules at any time on your device.

With UPOnline, you will not be alone because there are dedicated facilitators and contactable staff ready to help, motivate you and assist with any queries you may have. The UPOnline platform is also conducive to you asking questions and consulting with your facilitators.

UPOnline programmes are designed to be highly interactive learning environments. You’ll be sharing ideas with students from around the world. Live chats, discussion forums, and online video communication tools all help you become more connected to an expansive professional network.

You can start whenever it’s convenient for you because there are 6 start dates a year. This is different from a traditional academic calendar which normally only has one enrolment opportunity in the year, for example at the beginning of the year.

When studying online, you only focus on and pay for a single 8 or 16-week module at a time.
