The Faculty of Humanities conducts an Orientation programme for Postgraduate students at the start of each academic year. This takes place during the Registration period.

The Orientation programme includes a focus on the services available to postgraduate students, a focus on the world of research and a general introduction to life at the University of Cape Town. In order to make the most of your time as a student at UCT, it is imperative that you attend Faculty Orientation and fully participate in the process.

Students who miss out on any aspect of this year's orientation have the following options:

  1. Arrange a UCT libraries tour with The Chancellor Oppenheimer Library
  2. Visit The Writing Centre to see what's on offer
