Prospective students

Open Day

Every year we host Open Day aimed at high school learners in Grades 10, 11 and 12, their families and teachers.

This event presents an ideal opportunity to explore the vast range of study options that UCT showcases on this day. Open Day gives you the chance to find out exactly what certain fields of study entail.

The opportunity to speak to someone face-to-face about the different academic programmes and what they involve is absolutely vital to making the best study choices.

All faculties and departments take part in this event, and activities include:

  • displays by all faculties and their respective departments
  • lectures by academic members of staff from the various faculties
  • information about financial assistance
  • personal interaction with current students and academics
  • library tours and exposure to some of the facilities on campus
  • a look at sports facilities available to students.

The university also organises a number of days when interested students can visit specific faculties or departments.

Information about Open Day is sent to schools and posted on the UCT website.

The Student Recruitment Office also offers the following services to prospective students:

  • school talks to Grade 11 and 12 learners
  • Grade 9 subject-choice talks
  • campus tours
  • career evenings
  • career exhibitions
  • assistance with the application procedure
