    UCT aspires to become a premier academic meeting point between South Africa, the rest of Africa and the world. Taking advantage of expanding global networks and our distinct vantage point in Africa, we are committed, through innovative research and scholarship, to grapple with the key issues of our natural and social worlds.

    The capability and efficiency of UCT never ceases to amaze me. Currently doing a course part-time, and quite impressed with the overall organisation of the content. Yes, there are a few bumps along the way, it at the end of the day you will get your cake and eat it

    Currently studying here, but besides for all this protests that's going on, UCT is actually top class, with the best facilities and a broad set of courses offered, i thoroughly enjoy it here, although hard work is definitely a requirement to make a success here.

    UCT is one of the finest places in the world to study. The beauty of Cape Town is just too much to be missed and it would be the best time of your life. You will instantly fall in love with this remarkable city, a city where dreams are made and one where people will come time and time again.

    An excellent level of teaching. The good thing with this campus is that the students have 1 week practical (at a school) and 1 week lectures. This is for a period of 9 months of the year, thus allowing the students to qualify not only with a degree but also with experience. They also do special needs training and visualy impaired. The campus is very clean and there is strict security. They are also centrally situated. The lecturers are well trained and I have even been honoured to have my daughter pass both 1st and 2nd year with 20 distinctions (10 per year). Much is required from this campus but if the students are serious about passing with a high level education then Embury is the place.

    Having been at UCT for the past 4 years I can happily say that it is a fantastic university and deserves its top ranking amongst the best universities of the world. Being located against a stunning mountain backdrop, it offers stunning views over Cape Town, and it is not the worst place to watch the sun rise before an 8am lecture! The quality of teaching is obviously top class, and the facilities such as lecture theatres, laboratories etc. are very good. I would not consider any other university in SA!

    UCT certainly deserves its place amongst the top universities in Africa and even the world. The university is set on the picturesque landscape that is Table Mountain whilst overlooking the magnificent expanse of the majority of Cape Town. The University has tremendous historical significance in terms of its architecture and distinguished alumni. There is unrivaled access to some of the best facilities available in Africa allowing important research to take place. The university produces students who are able to not only complete the tasks they have studied towards but they are certainly able to change the game in terms of the international stage. As a health sciences student I would recommend the Faculty to anybody wanting to start a career in research.

    I respect UCT so much that I am recommending my niece to study her first degree there. Information on the website is easy to access, lets hope that their administration upon registration will be as easy as their site to deal with.

    Excellent IT courses offered by UCT I highly recommend it.Who can challenge UCT as the Tertiary institution with the best view? But never-mind that, from the excellent facilities for out of town students (and yes, out of country students too) UCT must surely rank as the premier destination for those wishing to gain that degree in style.

    The experience of UCT is like no other. Waking up to a cloudless mountain every morning is enough inspiration to attend lectures. The academic performance of this institution is the best in the country and the students here are given every resource to excel to their full potential.
    Overall this university has given me the best first year I could have dreamt of.

    University of Cape Town has greatly improved in the past couple of years, with improved infrastructure, better treatment of international students, and improved academic performances. I think it is a place any student that is determined to be the best should go to.
