The University of Cape Town (UCT) is a public research university located in Cape Town in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Founded in 1829 as the South African College, it is the oldest university in South Africa and the second oldest in Africa. We have a high number of international students, especially in our postgraduate programmes and our staff are consistently rated as excellent researchers. The university continually strives to improve its global competitiveness whilst remaining locally relevant and engaged. Moreover, the impact of research that results from meaningfully focused agendas demonstrates high responsive engagement with society. At UCT, the four instruments for driving such collaboration are National Centres of Excellence, National Research Chairs, Institutional "signature themes" and Peer-accredited Research Groupings.
UCT has already received accreditation in all of the research fields which ARISE has targeted as important for this programme.
The University is situated in Rondebosch, Cape Town, and English is the language of instruction at the university.
