UCT receives many visitors from around the world each year. Delegations from universities, government agencies, research institutions and other organisations visit the university in order to cement existing relationships and establish new ones.

UCT encourages these visits and considers hosting visitors as an excellent way of building meaningful and productive relationships.

In order for us to plan these visits so that they yield maximum benefit for all concerned, and to accommodate the many visit requests please fill in the Visitor Request Form and email it to visit@uct.ac.za.

UCT is an open campus, whether you are in town for an admissions information session or simply want to see the campus, we invite you to explore our campus and community. Take a guided tour, attend a show at the Baxter Theatre or visit the Irma Stern Museum.


For more information on applications to UCT, visit the Admissions Office.
