We are excited to announce the launch of the Friends of Summer School (FOSS)

We invite you to join this new organisation dedicated to bringing Summer School to a wider audience of enthusiastic lifelong learners, regardless of age or economic status. The Friends of Summer School has been formed to help the grand old institution of Summer School to flourish. A stellar 2023 programme has been put together and we are now planning for future Summer Schools.

FOSS is a volunteer-driven membership organisation which will support the many important programmes, courses, lectures, and community engagement work of Summer School, ensuring that it attracts dynamic lecturers to provide excellent courses, in line with the university’s Vision 2030.

Your participation will ensure that Summer School remains vibrant and continues to thrive. Become a member of FOSS for as little as R200 a year and enjoy the following benefits:


  • 10% discount on all courses (except for practical art, language and writing courses)
  • Early bird registration one week before bookings open
  • The opportunity to meet and socialise with lecturers
  • A complimentary printed Summer School brochure (all others pay R50)
  • Two newsletters a year

Your membership funding is invaluable to us in achieving our goals for our future. Why not gift the friend who has everything a subscription to the Friends of Summer School?
