University Of Cape Town July Intake

The July intake at UCT offers an opportunity for prospective students to begin their academic journey in the middle of the year. This intake enables individuals who may have missed the February intake or have other reasons for starting their studies in July to enroll in the university.

When considering the July intake, it’s important to remember that not all programs and courses may be available during this intake period. Some programs might have limited intake options or specific criteria for mid-year entry. Therefore, it’s advisable to evaluate the course offerings and speak with the university’s admissions office to ensure the availability and suitability of your desired program.

Submitting results and documents
