About the University of Cape Town…

“Our mission is to be an outstanding teaching and research university, educating for life and addressing the challenges facing our society.

Educating for life means that our educational process must provide:

  • a foundation of skills, knowledge and versatility that will last a life-time, despite a changing environment;
  • research-based teaching and learning;
  • critical enquiry in the form of the search for new knowledge and better understanding; and
  • an active developmental role in our cultural, economic, political, scientific and social environment.

Addressing the challenges facing our society means that we must come to terms with our past, be cognizant of the present, and plan for the future.”
