It might have been the first day of the weekend, but thousands of prospective students descended on UCT's upper campus to sink their teeth into the university's annual Open Day on 16 April 2016.
Faculties set out their stalls and the high-schoolers sampled the courses that caught their eye. Staff and senior UCT students were on hand to guide their prospective colleagues through the finer details of each study programme, where to get the best lunch and how cool the view from Jameson Steps is at night.
“Open Day is the one opportunity annually where prospective undergraduate students and their parents are able to interact with staff and students from across all faculties and academic departments, and from the many departments that work in support of our students,” says Carl Herman, director of UCT's Admissions Office.
