Enhancing the University of Cape Town’s African Focus

African Partnerships and Programmes

Welcome to Africa! The African Partnerships and Programmes (APP) Unit of the International Academic Programmes Office at the University of Cape Town is the key department that drives the University’s African focus. A cornerstone of this African vision is to ensure that UCT is a destination of choice for African students coming to UCT on donor funded programmes.


This section explores, develops and maintains partnerships and programmes which strengthen UCT’s academic integration with other African Universities. The aim of this is to build capacity and promote collaboration between academics, students and staff. These programmes and academic activities may be of a short (e.g. a colloquium, or Africa Month) or long (e.g. an ongoing exchange programme) duration.
