THE University of KwaZulu-Natal is pulling out all the stops to increase its number of doctoral graduates and retain its current standing as the second most productive South African university — after the University of Pretoria — as measured by gross research output.

According to deputy vice-chancellor for research, knowledge production and partnerships Professor Johan Jacobs, the university is intent on “fostering and entrenching” a research culture at the institution. “We are not just a teaching university. We are first a research-led university and we want to hold on to our current position,” he said. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
