The University of Cape Town (UCT) is getting ready to welcome first-year students who have been accepted for their inaugural year of study at Africa’s leading university.
The First-Year Campus Onboarding service (formerly known as the First-Year Campus Reception), which was introduced for the first time in 2021, will take place in the Sports Centre on upper campus from Saturday, 28 January, to Monday, 30 January. The jam-packed three-day event allows students to walk into one venue and leave with everything they need to kick-start their journeys as students at UCT.
The First-Year Campus Onboarding service makes everything simple and stress-free.
Students will receive their student cards, which, before the programme was introduced, had always been a scramble. Further, students will also receive assistance with logging into PeopleSoft – UCT’s online self-service student administration portal, and to sign the necessary declarations. PeopleSoft contains students’ academic records, timetables, course marks and personal information. And students who have opted to join the UCT Laptop Programme must collect their laptops on the day.
The reception is open to incoming first-year students who have received and accepted firm offers from UCT.
Please check your UCT student email account: if you have been made a firm offer, you will have received an email containing detailed information about the First-Year Campus Onboarding programme, as well as instructions on how to book your time slot on one of the three days.
