Debates in higher education


Views from campus

UCT is a stimulating and challenging learning environment because of the diversity of our community. We have more than 28 000 students and more than 5 000 staff from all over South Africa and from about 112 other countries.

The past few years have seen nationwide debate and protest action that has drawn attention to critical issues affecting higher education in South Africa. As a result, discussions and debates continue on our campus.
