As an international student at UCT, you have many possibilities after graduation. Options may include further study, returning to your home country to work, applying to stay and work in SA, or looking for an opportunity elsewhere in the world.
Options with your degree
Some options with your degree may be obviously and directly linked to what you have studied, but many jobs require a cluster of skills that are not necessarily subject knowledge based.
We have compiled a list of useful sector sites, ideas for voluntary work, further study ideas and work opportunities for you to explore that are related to your area of study. This is just to get you thinking - if nothing appeals to you, know that these are not your only options.
As an international student, with a Study Visa to be in South Africa, you are permitted to work in a voluntary capacity or may be paid to work for up to 20 hours per week on a part-time basis.
The Department of Home Affairs is responsible for visas - information can be found on their website.
General work visas are issued only to foreigners where South African citizens with the relevant skills are not available; it is worth investigating if you are entitled to apply for a Critical Skills Work Visa.
