The UCT Global Citizenship Programme (GCP) is a co-curricular programme providing opportunities for critical engagement with contemporary global and local debates, as well as reflect on issues of citizenship, service work, and social justice.
The GC Programme offers three short-courses which are free and available to all UCT students and which they can complete at any point in their time at the institution. These courses are:
