Summer School is an excellent opportunity for UCT students to sample the many disciplines available at the university, which may inform further study, said Medee Rall, the director of the Centre for Extra-Mural Studies (EMS). Moreover, students pay just one quarter of the registration fees.
Negotiating learning and identity in higher education by Dr Bongi Bangeni and A/Prof Rochelle Kapp, is the latest addition to the collaborative books produced jointly by CHED and other faculties at UCT. The book addresses the issue of students’ multiple transitions in and out of the higher education system, and uniquely documents the agency they display as they negotiate the constraints of multiple contexts over time.
Emeritus Professor, Ian Scott has written a series of articles for the Mail & Guardian about issues in Basic and Higher Education in South Africa: "Without success, access will fail", "No quick fix for university crisis", and "Core issues besides finance and access hinder students' success".
