Varsity is the official student-run news source at UCT. Established in 1942, Varsity has grown into a creative and multimedia developmental agency. Producing new content every Tuesday, the publication alternates between its print newspaper and website. The online presence spans various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
Varsity content prioritises issues affecting the UCT community and strives to represent the student voice accurately. It has become the go-to news source for students who want on-the-ground reporting.
Members of the Varsity collective are all UCT students who have chosen to be part of the team on a voluntary basis. Students are encouraged to contribute articles regularly, or on an ad hoc basis. Collective members are able to develop their journalistic and creative skills. Students can also be involved in areas like advertising, marketing, finance, operations and human resources.
