Two New Universities Planned in South Africa

The Republic of South Africa has announced plans to open two new public universities. The plan is part of the government’s effort to increase total university enrollments in the county to 1.5 million students by 2030.

The largest of the two universities in Mpumalanga is expected to enroll 15,000 students. A second university campus for the Northern Cape near the city of Kimberley is projected to enroll 5,000 students. Construction on the new universities will begin in 2014.

The South African government is asking the population for suggestions on names for the new educational institutions.
