The University of Cape Town (UCT) is physically closed as a result of the National Lockdown restrictions in South Africa in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
No staff or students are permitted on campus without an invitation from the University. As a result, only online remote service remains in place, thus we are unable to provide you with hard copies of official documentation. However, where applicable, electronic versions may be requested.
Please note: Duplicate certificates and certificate reprints are not available electronically.
There is no indication of when the SRO will be permitted to re-open. Please regularly monitor the UCT website for updates.
While we are able to verify whether a person has a particular qualification from UCT or not, we are not able to release to parents, guardians and other third parties any private information pertaining to current or past students' academic records, nor can we release copies of those academic records without written consent or proof of power of attorney, unless the disclosure complies with an obligation imposed by law.
