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. Unfortunately, due to restrictions caused by the pandemic, no Open Day was possible in 2020. The risks considered last year remain present, and therefore we hosted the 2021 UCT Virtual Open Day on 22 May 2021.

This event presented an ideal opportunity to explore the vast range of undergraduate study options that UCT offers.

The opportunity to get information about the different academic programmes and what they involve is absolutely vital to making the best study choices.

All faculties and departments participated in this event, and activities included:

  • lectures by academic members of staff from the various faculties
  • information about financial assistance
  • virtual residence tour and information about some of the facilities offered on campus.

All Virtual Open Day presentations will soon be available on the UCT Admissions YouTube channel.
