Advice for Prospective Students

Students intending to apply for LLB studies in the Law Faculty at the University of Cape Town are advised to read the website section for Undergraduate Students on the UCT home page. This set of pages provides information about how to apply for your preferred course of study; student housing; financial matters and other key areas of information for prospective students. 

The UCT application form is available there for download and completion.

Those who are not South African citizens or permanent residents should also read the information for International Students, especially the section dealing with Study Permits.

For students interested in postgraduate study, more information about LLM degrees and Postgraduate Diplomas is presented in the web pages of the School for Advanced Legal Studies.

LLB students already registered in the Faculty should refer their enquiries to the Student Advisors. These advisors are available at set times for "walk-in" consultations. In the event of an urgent matter, please make an appointment with the relevant Departmental Secretary or by email direct to the Adviser concerned.
