The University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Centre for Extra-Mural Studies (CMS) has finalised its 2020 Summer School programme, and booking is now open for the courses, which will be hosted in the Kramer Law Building on middle campus from 6 to 25 January next year.

The three-week public education programme, open to everyone, irrespective of formal qualifications, offers a variety of short courses – from arts to history and science.

There are no examinations or certifications involved and the courses offered are for non-degree purposes. There may, however, be written or practical projects and reading required before course completion.

The aim of Summer School, located in the Development and Alumni Department, is to make UCT’s academic resources available and accessible to the public.

Climate change


The University of Cape Town is an internationally renowned hub for climate change research and training. Our work is a strategic response to urgent knowledge and capacity needs on the African continent – climate change impacts have severe implications for economic and social development, and Africa is particularly vulnerable. Greater expertise is needed to understand the challenges and to design, evaluate and sustain solutions. Engaged research can help society innovate and support effective climate policies and strategies.

This series of articles shows how UCT researchers are working with governments, civil society and the private sector to co-produce knowledge that is impactful, moving us towards a more resilient African society.
