On 3 October, Baroness Chalker of Wallasey, a trustee of the UK UCT Trust, hosted an event for UK-based UCT alumni at the Houses of Parliament.
Eighty-five alumni and their guests came to hear a talk by Cape Town's 2008 World Mayor, Helen Zille, also Leader of the Democratic Alliance.
She praised UCT's role in South African education, drawing attention to the innovative steps UCT had taken to help young students from disadvantaged backgrounds "bridge the gap", enabling them to study at a world-class institution.
Later, a question and answer session was chaired by the Baroness.
