International and refugee scholarships

A limited number of scholarships are available to international and refugee students. As there is only one call for applications each year, it is important that the application procedure is strictly followed. These scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis and preference is given to senior candidates.

All UCT international and refugee students' scholarships are supplementary. Students who apply must have the means to fund their studies.

The scholarships are renewable for the duration of the course of study, if satisfactory progress is maintained, for 1 year at honours level, 2 at master's level and 3 at doctoral level.

Applicants must apply for full-time admission through the UCT admissions office or the faculty office. Late applications are not accepted.

Closing date: 31 July (preceding the year of study)

The applicant's country of origin has no bearing on the award of scholarships, but proof of refugee status is required.

Funding is available for postgraduate studies only. The bursaries are awarded on a yearly basis.

Please refer to booklet 14 (see right column) for full details.
