Our Vision

We aim to achieve excellence through high quality education and research relevant to local, regional and national needs, and through cooperation with leading researchers and educators both in South Africa and internationally.

 Our Mission

To train students in Botanical Sciences, to adequately equip them to apply themselves meaningfully in any activity requiring botanical expertise.

Undergraduate level training aims to provide a wide-spectrum comprehension of the anatomy, physiology, systematics, ecology and ethnobotanical aspects of plants.

At postgraduate level, our objectives are concerned with maintaining a high level of scientific excellence in botanical research with specific emphasis on ethnobotanical aspects as well as ethnomedicine.
