UCT has officially launched its new English Language Centre (ELC) under the auspices of the International Academic Programmes Office.

The ELC, which offers language tuition, accommodation and visa assistance to international students, has been operating since 16 November 2015. Cape Town is already home to around 25 language schools and the UCT addition further positions the city as a top destination for learning English.

Globally, the language learning market is estimated to generate is excess of $58.2 billion, according to Simon Harrison, principal and chief architect of the ELC.

He adds: “What differentiates the ELC is that it is underpinned by the UCT quality benchmark. Students are immersed in a multicultural university community that exposes them to an unrivalled mix of social, academic and tourist activities. And, lastly, students benefit from the university’s established support systems.”
