UCT Summer School 2024
Celebrate 100 years of continuous lifelong learning
In 1924… we did not yet know of the solar wind, Antarctica’s interior had not been mapped, and no-one had seen the far side of the moon. The Soviet Union had just been constituted, and Ireland had won independence. In South Africa, the ‘Nasionale Party’ of General JB Hertzog had come to power as the pact government in coalition with the Labour Party.
Join us in 2024 to see how the world has changed. The University of Cape Town’s Centre for Extra-Mural Studies invites Summer School participants, friends and alumni to attend Summer School from 13 to 27 January 2024. The only Summer School on the African continent, the programme is open to everyone regardless of educational qualifications or age; the lectures are for non-degree purposes and do not involve examinations. Several of the courses on offer qualify for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
