UCT Careers Service supports the career development learning of UCT students enabling them to realise their potential and to contribute meaningfully to the communities in which they work and live.
Working with the university community and external stakeholders, we support personal and professional development and the cultivation of lifelong career management skills through the provision of careers education, information, advice, guidance and opportunities.
The Careers Service strives to be a leading South African and internationally benchmarked careers service that endeavours to provide a fair, unbiased, and professional service to current UCT students, graduates, *recent alumni, Grade 9 to 12 learners and *recent school leavers. (* up to three years)
