Fees & Funding


The UCT post graduate funding office is a good place to start. Here is an overview of funding and deadlines.

Remember, when applying there are not only funding deadlines to consider. E.g. are you a South African, SADC region or international student?

This can be confusing and we suggest you take the time to look through the available information before contacting the funding office. If you are informed they can be very helpful.
