Sol Plaatje University is located in Kimberley, Northern Cape. This region gives our students and staff unique opportunities for learning, research and community development.

The  Province hosts a remarkably rich archive of human and natural heritage, which exists both in formal collections and in informal communal and natural environments of this beautiful region.

Kimberley hosts good quality museums and galleries, as well as special archival collections located in this rich narrative that has yet to be told.

This context presents us with an exceptional opportunity to make a global contribution to intellectual development and knowledge production in the arts and Humanities/Heritage fields of study.

Rooted in this rich context, our teaching, research and community engagement taps into this rich archive, yet interacts with the world around us.

We pride ourselves on excellent teaching and service to our students, conduct relevant and socially responsive relevant research and create opportunities for community and public engagement activities, opening our doors and hearts to the community around us.

Our graduates are able to gain access to tailored opportunities in industry, academia, research, and community service niches. The students gain experience and exposure to local and international businesses through several agreements the School has with relevant stakeholders.
