University Of Cape Town Notable Alumni;

UCT values its bonds with its alumni and works hard to create links between alumni throughout the world. There are over 100 000 of you, and as diverse as this community is, your shared experiences and memories of studying on our spectacular campus make for a very strong alumni network indeed. This network continues to grow, and it now has a wide footprint not only in South Africa but spans across our continent and reaches all corners of the globe.
One of the Development & Alumni Department’s main objectives is to broaden and strengthen our alumni database so that we can keep you up to date with exciting developments at UCT. We aim to do this through UCT Alumni News, the magazine for alumni, and also news updates from your faculties or national alumni coordinators.
Your alma mater looks forward to welcoming you back, whether to a public lecture, a leadership forum, your class reunion, or just an informal visit. We are arranging more events for those of you who live outside Cape Town too, so please let us know your current contact details, and from time to time also tell us something about your lives and where you are in your careers.
