1931 - University of KwaZulu-Natal (before merging)
Twenty twenty one (2021) University of KwaZulu-Natal graduates echoed the real meaning of black excellence. Just about ninety (90) years ago, early 1930s. The average number of black graduates from the institution were most probably less than a hundred. Today, hundreds of black people graduate year in and out, including the certified doctors below contradicting the picture above.

This picture does not only speak of the UKZN institution, but a clear indication of how far South Africans have come in terms of higher education and training. The equality may not be present in the daily lives of Mzansi's people. However, what better gift can you give a willing black child than education.
Many South Africans could not help but express their immense happiness and gratitude. Some even pointed out how most black people in the past were dominating on other careers such as teaching, domestic working, police work, mining, mostly unemployment and anything else except fields such as health sciences that would eventually allow them to be certified medical doctors, pharmacists, radiologists, nurses or clinicians.
Initially formed as the "University of Natal" (UN) in 1910 at Pietermaritzburg . Very much still under the apartheid system. Later on, around 2004 , it was merged with the University of Durban - Westville into the now known UKZN (University of KwaZulu-Natal). An excellent academic institution indeed.
The institution has clearly come far at this point, It is approximately the 7th oldest University in Southern Africa. With the University of Capetown (UCT) , University of Pretoria (UP) , University of Witswatersand (Wits), University of Stellenbotch and University of Johannesburg (UJ) taking the first five positions in accordance to www. 4icu .org.
