London School of Economics (LSE)
The first LSE/UCT July School was held in 2013, and was attended by 100 participants from more than 30 countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas. It was a collaborative event organised by LSE and the Centre for Open Learning at UCT. LSE and UCT will be offering the second LSE/UCT July School in July 2014. This innovative two-week programme provides students, graduates and professionals from around the world with an exciting new opportunity to study important social science issues relevant to Africa today. The programme is taught by outstanding faculty members from UCT and LSE, two of the world’s leading institutions in teaching and research.
UCT has also welcomed two PhD students from LSE as international affiliates and has sent two UCT PhD students to LSE for a short research exchange period.
