The Students' Representative Council (SRC) hosted its annual Academic Awareness Fortnight to raise awareness about academic matters and to spotlight resources available to students at UCT.

Using the slogan 'How much do you know about UCT? Come and find out', the two-week event, which started on 28 April, introduced students to representatives of resource centres such the libraries, the disability unit and the sports centre.

They were also armed with advice on career development, how to prepare for interviews, and financial matters such as investment and drawing up a budget.

Dylan van Vuuren, the SRC's academic chair, said the event was a co-ordinated effort by the SRC academic sub-council, Student Faculty Councils, Career Development Programme, Disabled Students Movement and the Oppenheimer Library.

"One of the purposes of this awareness campaign was to give students the skills they need to overcome challenges at the university," Van Vuuren said.
