Rhodes University was established in 1905 and funded by the Rhodes Trust.
The university was conceived to satisfy the need of a high learning facility in the Eastern Cape as the schooling facilities proved inadequate to prepare students for examinations of the University of the Cape of Good Hope. From humble beginnings, Rhodes has grown to become an internationally recognised and prestigious university boasting the highest undergraduate pass rate in South Africa for any university. The University has become a beacon of research and cultural diversity hosting many events throughout the year such as SciFest Africa, The National Arts Festival, Graduation, Intervarsity sporting events, and many more.
