Further Education: Part Two

By Sihle Jack

As promised last time, we will be doing a university application series outlining the important details for you to know to further your education and apply for university. This week we focused on the big universities in the Western Cape. An interesting fact to know is that the Western Cape houses what is according to Africa.com currently the best university in the country – the University of Cape Town (UCT). As with the universities in the Eastern Cape, in order to qualify one has to meet the minimum APS scores which are calculated differently at each university. The universities for this week are: the University of Cape Town, the University of the Western Cape, Stellenbosch University and Cape Peninsula University of Technology.
