At UCT, we cultivate Africa’s leading researchers and thought-leaders.
Research that matters
UCT offers postgraduates opportunities to address the most urgent issues of our time. With diverse research strengths and interdisciplinary research institutes, we connect you to the projects and people that make an impact.
African and international networks
Postgraduates at UCT access a vibrant network of African and international partnerships. This enables collaboration that drives local knowledge and bridges the gap between the global north and global south.
UCT supports its postgraduates in achieving overall health and wellness with fitness, healthcare and counselling services. Postgraduates can also access professional and academic resources, as well as personalised guidance at the Postgrad Centre and Funding Office.
Over one-third of South Africa’s top researchers, who are world leaders in their fields, are based at UCT. UCT postgraduates are future leaders who drive innovation, discovery and commercial collaboration with a global impact.
