[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2020, using the UKZN website: The University of KwaZulu-Natal was formed on 1 January 2004 as a result of the merger between the University of Durban-Westville and the University of Natal. The University of Durban-Westville was established in the 1960s as the University College for Indians on Salisbury Island in Durban Bay. Founded in 1910 as the Natal University College in Pietermaritzburg, the University of Natal was granted independent university status in 1949 owing to its rapid growth in numbers, its wide range of courses and its achievements in and opportunities for research.]
