Registration for LSE-UCT July School open
The Centre for Extra-Mural Studies will be hosting the fifth LSE-UCT July School from 17-28 July 2017. This innovative and prestigious two-week ‘summer school’ style programme provides high-calibre students, graduates and professionals from across the globe with an opportunity to study social science issues relevant to Africa today across subject areas as diverse as international relations, economics, management, government, geography, law, media and social policy.
Participants select one intensive course to study for the two-week programme. Each course is delivered by leading academics from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and/or the University of Cape Town, supported by teaching assistants, usually PhD students from one of the partner institutions.
Mid-term assessments and a final examination allow the award of a graded transcript to participants who successfully complete the programme.
