University of Cape Town Students Scholarships
Various categories of funding provide support towards the cost of study at University of Cape Town (UCT) for students who will register for Honours, Masters and Doctoral degrees. The UCT offers a limited number of scholarships, available to non-South African graduates who are residents of countries other than South Africa.
All UCT International and Refugee Students’ Scholarships are supplementary. Students who apply must have the means to fund their studies. The scholarships are renewable for the duration of the course of study, if satisfactory progress is maintained, for one year at honours level, two at master’s level and three at doctoral level.
We are inviting applications for the International and Refugee Students’ Scholarships from full time Honours, Masters and Doctoral Students.
Funding is available for refugees in South Africa. The Scholarships awarded on a yearly basis. The country of origin is irrelevant, but we require proof of Refugee status.
Funding is available for postgraduate studies only. We award the bursaries on a yearly basis. The country of origin is irrelevant.
The International & Refugee Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis with emphasis given to academic merit and to the seniority of candidates.
To qualify for postgraduate funding, intending postgraduate students must first formally apply for an academic place at UCT. Only students registering for Honours, Masters and Doctoral degrees are eligible.
Students who register for postgraduate diplomas and certificates, the BArch, the LLB, or for the Undergraduate 4th year of any Bachelors degree are not eligible for UCT’s postgraduate awards, and so go to the Student Financial Aid Office. Students who intend to study for a second degree at the same level as one they already hold, (e.g., a second Honours degree) are also not eligible for funding.
It is important to note that the University is not able to provide full-cost funding to postgraduate students. The Scholarships and bursaries will contribute towards the cost of study and applicants need to secure additional support.
The closing date is 31 July 2017
