UCT Post-graduate studies - Page 25

The Yale/Fox Fellowship is a
prestigious two-way international
exchange programme between
the University of Cape Town
and Yale University. It supports
outstanding postgraduates with
demonstrated leadership potential
from the world’s finest educational
institutions to spend an academic
year at Yale University pursuing
independent research in one of
a number of fields, from
economics to politics and law.
Vrije University Amsterdam (VUA)
offers scholarships to graduate
students in the School of Economics
at UCT to spend either a full
semester or to attend the short SKILL
programme at VUA.
UCT has an exchange agreement with
the University of California (UC), USA,
in which students can choose to spend
a semester at any of the UC campuses
(apart from the medical campus)
without paying tuition fees.
UCT has a rapidly expanding joint degree programme to connect our
postgraduates with opportunities to work in partnership with universities
based overseas. These offer UCT postgraduates the opportunity to gain
valuable international exposure and experience.
Jointly awarded degrees entail
equal involvement and investment
from both/all participating institutions
(e.g., each institution will examine
the work involved and postgrads are
required to spend equal amounts of
time at each institution).
Co-badged degrees require
50% or more of the work
conducted by the postgraduate
to be done at the university
where the student is registered.
In both instances a single degree is issued. UCT does not offer double degrees.
The Erasmus + programme aims to enhance quality in higher education through
academic cooperation between the European Union and the rest of the world.
UCT is involved in several successful Erasmus + partnerships that offer mobility
opportunities to postgraduates and staff.
Mobility opportunities
UCT has exchange agreements
with a number of universities
across the world. These mean
that students can apply to
spend a period of time (usually
a semester) at one of these
institutions without paying
tuition fees. Sometimes we are
also able to offer a scholarship
to cover some or all of the travel
or living costs. We prioritise
postgraduates for these
