Parents Orientation

This is an event organised for parents of first-year students who have received a firm offer of acceptance to study at the University. It is traditionally a time when parents are introduced to UCT and allows them to familiarise themselves with how the University operates.  It provides information on how the University is structured to offer the best possible learning environment and also explains what students can expect in their first year of study.

Parents please refer to http://dsa.uct.ac.za/student-orientation/parent-orientation closer to the time for further information (dates and times) or contact the Communication & Marketing Office at Tel: 27 21 650 4436 or Fax 27 21 650 5628.
