Academic Advice

You may need to seek academic advice regarding course choices, both before arriving at UCT and once you are here. We urge you to stay in regular contact with your home institution regarding your course selection. Bear in mind that transfer of credits is always at the discretion of the home institution.

When you arrive at UCT, you may seek advice from any of the heads of department (IAPO can direct you appropriately), or the Academic Advisor.

Those coming through our local partner providers (Arcadia, CIEE, IES and ISA) will have access to academic advice through the local office and should consult with the resident director.

Once you have completed the programme, three copies of your transcript will be sent to your home institution, together with an explanation of the grading system used at UCT. Should you require additional copies of the transcripts in future, contact any of the staff members above directly on the email addresses given above.
