Alumni News & Events

The University of Cape Town’s Regional Office, Canada, is one of three international offices, set up to maintain relations with alumni worldwide by -

  • Organising networking opportunities that foster professional and social contacts amongst alumni of UCT;
  • Promoting the University of Cape Town, its faculties, staff, students and alumni;
  • Providing a conduit for Canadian tax efficient donations to UCT in response to fundraising appeals sent out from the University from time to time;

We aim to see a revitalization of Canadian UCT Alumni chapters in three centres, namely Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary, or anywhere else in Canada where there is interest and a critical mass. The UCT Regional Office in Canada is available to assist chapters with arranging events that will have relevance to UCT or its alumni. Feel free to contact Di Stafford at the Regional Office directly.
