Academic Development Programme (ADP)

Faculty-based programmes

There are ADP staff and programmes in all UCT faculties. The most widely-used and successful ADP strategy for fostering access and success is the "extended curriculum" model, in which substantial foundational provision is articulated with the mainstream curriculum, resulting in a lengthened degree programme that allows educationally disadvantaged students to develop firm academic foundations. While educationally disadvantaged students continue to face substantial obstacles, ADP programmes have played a key role in enabling the growth of black student enrolment and graduation at UCT, and have achieved some highly encouraging successes. In recent years, for example, the majority of black (African) graduates in Science and Engineering have participated successfully in ADP programmes and courses.
