Blurb: 
The University of Cape Town (UCT) is South Africa's oldest university, and is one of Africa's leading teaching and research institutions. UCT was founded in 1829 as the South African College, a high school for boys and was formally established as a university in 1918. Apart from establishing itself as a leading research and teaching university in the decades that followed, UCT earned itself the nickname “Moscow on the Hill” during the period 1960 to 1990 for its sustained opposition to apartheid, particularly in higher education. UCT's success can be can be measured by the scope of study it offers and the calibre of its graduates. The university has six faculties - Commerce, Engineering & the Built Environment, Law, Health Sciences, Humanities and Science - which are supported by UCT's Centre for Higher Education Development, which addresses students' teaching and learning needs.

Blurb: 
The World Universities Debating Championship (WUDC) is the largest debate competition in the world. First held in Glasgow in 1981, the WUDC has grown to include over 400 teams from 250 universities and tertiary institutions representing over 90 countries. The WUDC follows the four team British Parliamentary (BP) format, with two teams representing the proposition and two teams representing the opposition. Teams are given a motion which is announced fifteen minutes before the debate and must come up with convincing argument for or against the motion drawing on their knowledge of art and culture, current affairs, economics, education, ethics, history, international relations, politics, religion, science and technology, social policy, sports and many other diverse and impactful topics. The sides teams are expected to represent are assigned randomly and speakers don’t always argue in line with their own opinions.
