History of the University Of Limpopo

The University of Limpopo came about as a result of the merger between two previously existing institutions; the University of the North and the former Medical University of Southern Africa.

Formed originally as the University College of the North, the University of the North was established under the South African apartheid government’s University Education Act of 1959 which made provision for the creation of racially exclusive universities for black South Africans. The College was placed under the academic trusteeship of the University of South Africa until the South African Parliament promulgated the University of the North Act (Act No. 47 of 1969) which brought to an end the institution’s college status on the 1st of January 1970.

The Medical University of Southern Africa (MEDUNSA), on the other hand, was established in 1976. It was put together with the intention of training the educationally disadvantaged in the fields of Medicine, Nursing Sciences, and Dentistry in order to meet the health needs of other disadvantaged people in the country.

Financial Support

The University of Limpopo awards academic bursaries (full tuition) to first-year students and other full-time undergraduate students who perform very high in their academics.

First-year students who qualify must meet the following criteria.

1. Register to study at the University of Limpopo for a first degree for the first time after grade 12.

2. Must have obtained a 70% average or higher from their grade 12 final examination.

The requirements for full-time students on the other hand includes:

1. For full upfront registration fees, the student must have achieved an overall pass of 70 – 75% from the previous year.

2. For full tuition fees, the student must have achieved an overall pass of 76% – 100% from the previous year/level of study on the first attempt.

NB: The bursaries are not automatic. Students who qualify are required to apply annually. Also, the bursaries do not apply to students who are receiving any other scholarship or bursary that covers the full amount the student is entitled to. If a student qualifies for the full tuition fees and receives a bursary that does not cover the full cost of the study, the tuition fee shall be limited to the difference between the full tuition payable and the bursary received by the student.
