Various categories of funding provide support towards the cost of study at UCT for students who will register for Honours, Masters and Doctoral degrees.
It is important to note that the University is not able to provide full-cost funding to postgraduate students. Scholarships and bursaries awarded will contribute towards the cost of study and applicants are advised to secure additional support.
The Postgraduate Funding Office located on the upper campus (Otto Beit Building), is an important source of information and advice about potential funding sources and the procedures necessary to access these.
