VC celebrates centenary with University of Fort Hare

11 February 2016

Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price visited the University of Fort Hare (UFH) in the Eastern Cape for a centenary celebration. UFH, which counts many luminaries like Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu among its alumni, has planned a range of activities for its centennial year.

During his visit, Price spent time with UFH Vice-Chancellor Dr Mvuyo Tom. He also met UCT alumni in East London to give them an overview of recent events at UCT.

UCT has a valuable relationship with UFH and the University of Venda through the Trilateral Postgraduate Programme, which enables selected PhD students (fellows) from Fort Hare and Venda to spend a period of up to 12 months at UCT during their three-year programme.

The programme is intended to foster the development of a cohort of strong academic leaders at their home universities while at the same time generating new knowledge and expertise for the understanding and solution of local problems.
