    Great programme

    The programme covers all the principles necessary to understand in order excel in your career and workplace. As a computer science graduate, the programme has better prepared me for real life. Not only with programming skills but with an in-depth understanding of the field I am in.

    The campus is really beautiful, with a huge aspect of GREEN. There is literally plants everywhere which makes the place looks beautiful and shows the university cares for the environment.

    All the students are super nice too!

    fun

    It was great fun and learning experience at the University of Cape Town. I believe it is ranked the top university of Africa because of its extra and exceptional way of learning which start from scratch.

    Best Experience

    The greatest thing about UCT is the amount of diversity – there are people from all over Africa and usually there are exchange students and just foreigners. The fact that it is also the top university in Africa is telling.

    Awful

    I was using NSFAS last year. When I wanted to register for a post-graduate program this year I was told I have outstanding fees. That blocked me from registering. I had to pay the outstanding amount and then pay my registration fee. I rely on my mother who is a domestic worker for the funding and I don’t know where they expected me to get that money.
    On Tuesday I paid a registration of R5430 via the institution’s its enabler. That amount did not reflect on my student account, so I reported it to the Student Finance team. I having been calling since Tuesday and no one has helped me with my case. I even emailed them several times and still no response.

    Unhappy graduate

    I rate the UCT finance department a 0 out of 10. I have been applying for a refund of my overpaid tuition fees since 2020, 2 years later I am yet to receive my refund funds.

    They keep asking me for different documents each time I apply for a refund, I have provided them with all the documents they requested thus far, but they still fail to resolve my issue. So much for being a top 5 University in South Africa!

    And to add on to that when it is time for them to collect tuitions fees from students, they are too quick to send threats of deregistering students if payments are not made on time. But when it is their time to pay students what’s due to them, they turn a blind eye.

    Best Short Courses

    I recently complete the UCT marketing short online course in partnership with Getsmarter. I had a fantastic experience. I would recommend this to anyone. It take Up to 3 month to complete the course. There is a variety to chose from. It is great to help you advance in your career but it will not take years to complete. Great way to equip yourself in different areas and definitely worth the money you spent. Great tutors as well

    Poor service

    I did a short course through Getsmarter at UCT. When I received my certificate they spelt my surname wrong. So when you do complete a course make sure they spell your name right. Still waiting for them to get back to me. Once you are done with them they wipe their hands clean and move on. Frustrated and sad.

    Top Notch

    This is the best university ever. The students’ wellbeing are their top priority. During the fire that occurred at the campus, resulting in facilities such as res and libraries badly burned. The university took it upon themselves to sent us to private accommodation where they paid for our stay. I will never forget that experience and will always be grateful for what UCT has done!
