University of Cape Town

Program Overview

This campus has a friendly, international feel with its diverse student body and abundance of clubs and societies. Take advantage of your time at such a truly comprehensive institution with outstanding faculty in every school within the university. Particular academic strengths include business, science, engineering, and commerce.

UCT is located on the side of Table Mountain, allowing them spectacular views of the city and harbor from every vantage point.

All students on this program take part in Arcadia’s Course, Introducing South Africa: History, Politics and Culture, which provides a forum for reflection and analysis on current issues and challenges facing South Africans - an insightful starting point for all students. You then have a choice:

  • Take all your courses at UCT enjoying a wide choice of subjects with outstanding faculty. The broad selection runs from humanities to science, engineering and commerce.
  • Or, starting in Spring 2019, you can take two courses at UCT and one at the Cornerstone Institute, an innovative, not-for-profit institution focused on teaching and learning in service of others, to advance human dignity and social justice for all. This is a great option for students who appreciate and benefit from a smaller school’s personal attention and intimate class sizes with lots of interaction with local students.
  • Or, starting in Spring 2019, you can take one course at UCT, one course at Cornerstone Institute and complete a semester-length field work course at Cornerstone which includes 120 hours of placement. This is an excellent choice for those who enjoy service-learning courses in the U.S. and who are looking for resume-ready fieldwork experience in Sociology/Community Development, Psychology, or Management/Entrepreneurship.
