About HEUG Southern Africa - Johannesburg

The Higher Education Users Group (HEUG) Southern African region is excited to announce that we will be in person to Rediscover, Reconnect and Rejuvenate the future of our systems at HEUG Southern Africa - Johannesburg, September 7-8, 2023.  For many institutions our ERP systems have a decade of experience. Our program will cater to how we ensure we are delivering first-class services to our students and staff as well as what we have learned to inspire others and what pitfalls we can help prevent in the future. As always the HEUG Southern Africa - Johannesburg will continue to be a great opportunity to learn, network and share best practices with your colleagues from other institutions throughout Southern Africa. At the same time, you may wish to take the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Johannesburg.
