The information in this website is ONLY applicable to UCT Law students, and students coming from overseas Universities in their relevant year of study in law. Law students in their Intermediate or final year of study are eligible to apply. Students in other Faculties need to apply to their own respective exchange programmes.
In 2009 UCT will celebrated 150 years of the teaching of law and is the oldest law school in South Africa. About 40% of 800 students are registered for post-LLB studies. We also teach business law to approximately 3000 students from other faculties at UCT. Although most of our graduates join the legal profession, a significant minority use their legal skills in other spheres.
Since 2003 UCT has maintained its position as the highest ranked South African and African university in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) conducted annually by the institute of Higher Education at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In 2007 UCT was the only African university to make it into the top 200 of the Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) World University Rankings. UCT is one of only four universities from the developing world in the list of top 200 universities.
UCT continually strives to improve its global competitiveness whilst remaining locally relevant and engaged. We seek to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment conducive to both undergraduate and postgraduate work. For more information, please see the latest Law Review.
