Africa, Development, Geography and International Relations


Delivered at the University of Cape Town

The University of Cape Town provides a fascinating context in which to learn more about the politics, economics and geography of Africa, and to understand why Africa’s role internationally, and issues within the continent itself, are so important to the world in the 21st century. We integrate the city into our courses where possible, with trips to relevant places of interest. The stunning UCT campus, at the foot of Table Mountain, also offers an inspirational location for study and lively debate. Participants also have an opportunity to take an animal or shark-diving safari the weekend following the end of the course.
