Vice-chancellor's Open Lecture Series

2014

The Vice-Chancellor's Open Lecture series was established to enable anyone in the community, whether they are connected to the university or not , to have the benefit of hearing first-hand from academics, researchers and innovators who have distinguished themselves in their areas of expertise from South Africa ,but particularly, from around the world.

Attendance to the lectures is free of charge as the series is one of the ways that UCT seeks to give back to the Cape Town community.
