Six major university rankings have been published in 2017, each using their own indicators and criteria, weighted to represent what each believes is the most important factor showing excellence in tertiary education.

BusinessTech has compiled a rudimentary index to best represent how each South African institute has performed across all the rankings.

Only 16 South African universities featured among the major rankings released this year – one fewer than 2016. .

Among the ranked universities, there has been little change, with the University of Cape Town still ranking at the top university in the country, overall, followed by Wits and Stellenbosch University.

One notable change in the index, was the University of the Western Cape’s climb above North West University and Rhodes, being included in the Times Higher Education rankings for the first time.
