Here are South Africa’s universities ranked based on the starting salaries of their graduates.

All universities are not the same, and students from different universities get different starting salaries.

A recent recent qualifications and salary survey reveals that graduates from the University of the Witwatersrand earn the highest average starting salaries.

They are followed by graduates from the University of Cape Town, Rhodes University, and the University of Pretoria.

The survey was completed by 5,867 South Africans, of which the majority completed a tertiary qualification.

The starting salaries of graduates over the last 10 years were used to calculate the average salaries, which were adjusted for inflation and salary increases.

The graphic below shows the average salaries of graduates from the different institutions. It should be noted that fields of study were not considered in these averages.
