What We Do
Whether you require career-related information, advice or opportunities, UCT Careers Service offers a free service to all registered UCT students at all stages of study. We have a fresh lineup of face-to-face consultations, career educational interventions and job-search preparation resources. We also put you in contact with recruiters who are looking to connect with UCT students. Network with recruiters at expos, presentations, showcases, and entrepreneurship games. These activities all help prepare you for the world of work.
- Our goal is to enhance the quality of UCT’s graduates and ensure they are equipped with the skills to fulfill their career ambitions.
We aim to help our students to make a meaningful contribution to the communities in which they live and work.
The Careers Service’s direct reporting line is within the Centre for Higher Education Development (CHED) which is a cohesive, cross faculty structure working in partnership with all six UCT Faculties. The Dean of CHED reports directly to the Deputy Vice Chancellor responsible for teaching and learning at UCT which is important for us to achieve our vision of enabling careers education, information, advice and guidance embedded within the curriculum in faculties.
With PPS Foundation funding in 2016, the UCT Careers Service was able to enhance its online presence. UCT Careers appreciates this important contribution to strive to connect the 25 601 UCT student cohort to the Service’s offerings through digital engagement.
This contribution enabled the development of three (3) linked projects launched in March 2017
