Welcome to the North-West University – It All Starts Here!

Your choice of university is an important decision, and here we have broken up the process for you into four simple steps. Start with what you want to study and what the NWU offers ( 1. Start your journey), then you apply (2. Application), wait to see if you have been accepted (3. Admission) and finally, you can register (4. Registration). 

Follow this four-step process and study at your future university!
