Year in Review 2018

24 May 2019

The Year in Review 2018 sums up everything that makes this university what it is. While volumes could have been filled with a comprehensive report, the intention of this document is to give you a broad overview, and a few highlights, of the institution’s activities, its goals and its many achievements over the previous year. More than anything, this publication is an acknowledgement of our students and staff and all those who do so much to support the academic project.

Curriculum Change Framework feedback

The Curriculum Change Working Group (CCWG) was set up to facilitate dialogue across the university over a period of 18 months (March 2016 to September 2017) in order to shape strategies for meaningful curriculum change. The outcome of the process has led to the development of the Curriculum Change Framework, which highlights key pathways to meaningful curriculum change.

We hope that the framework will serve as an invitation for academic and research units at UCT to reflect on their own understanding of curriculum change, as well as on past, current and future practices of curriculum review, innovation and broader change within the academy.

Engaging with the Curriculum Change Framework is a fundamental step in an institutional dialogue about curriculum and the meanings and practices of curriculum change across disciplines.

To make the process inclusive and transparent, you are invited to send your comments on the framework to Anthea Metcalfe (
