NRF-Rated Researchers

*** This site is currently being updated ***

The University of Pretoria hosts a large number of NRF-rated researchers, which solidifies the University's position as a leading research facility in the country and one that is in line with international standards.

The NRF rating system is a benchmarking system through which individuals that exemplify the highest standards of research, as well as those demonstrating strong potential as researchers, are identified by an extensive network of South African and international peer reviewers. Ratings are based on the quality and impact of recent research outputs (over an eight-year period).

Besides the research output, the quality and impact of research at tertiary institutions in South Africa are also reflected in the number of rated scientists, identified through the National Research Foundation (NRF) rating system. To view a summary of the NRF Rating Categories, please click here
