The UCT English Language Centre has a wide range of quality English courses to meet your needs, including conversational English, business English, and preparation courses for the IELTS, TOEFL, FCE or CAE exams. Located in the vibrant, academically diverse Faculty of Humanities at UCT, the English Language Centre is at the hub of creativity and excitement. We offer year-round general English courses for all levels, from Elementary to Advanced, starting every Monday. With course ranging from 20 to 30 lessons a week, we have a course to suit different budgets, daily schedules and language learning needs.
The University of Cape Town is consistently ranked as the premier university in Africa, and welcomes over 4500 international students every year. As a UCT student, you will be able to participate in university life and culture and to take part in social activities, sports clubs and other societies. Our learner-centred approach puts students at the heart of everything we do and our highly qualified and experienced teachers are committed to ensuring that you reach your language goals.
We also offer safe and affordable accommodation to our students. For independent living, you can choose to stay at one of our student residences, with other students from all over the world. Staying in a homestay – sharing a house with a local family, couple or single person – means you have the chance to practice the English you learn at school in a real life environment, and gain an insight into South African life at the same time.
