University of Cape Town

If you’re looking for the widest choice of courses in South Africa and an institution with weight and prestige then studying abroad at the University of Cape Town (UCT) is probably the best bet for you. On Arcadia’s program, you can also add courses and experiences that get you involved with local communities and service efforts.

Perched on the side of Table Mountain, UCT has stunning vistas from every angle and is a popular choice for study abroad. Of its population of more than 20,000, about 4,000 students are international, creating a dynamic energy on campus and in the more than 100 clubs and societies. The Arcadia Cape Town Center is located right on campus at UCT, in the Ivan Tom’s Building, which sits between the upper campus and the Medical School on campus at UCT.

All students on this program take part in Arcadia’s Course, Introducing South Africa: History, Politics and Culture, which provides a forum for reflection and analysis on current issues and challenges facing South Africans - an insightful starting point for all students. You then have a choice:
  • Take three courses at UCT enjoying a wide choice of subjects with outstanding faculty. The broad selection runs from humanities to science, engineering and commerce.
  • Or, starting in Spring 2019, you can take two courses at UCT and one at the Cornerstone Institute, an innovative, not-for-profit institution focused on teaching and learning in service of others, to advance human dignity and social justice for all. This is a great option for students who appreciate and benefit from a smaller school’s personal attention and intimate class sizes with lots of interaction with local students.
