Clubs & Societies

There are more than 100 student societies and organisations at UCT reflecting a wide range of interests. These include academic, religious, cultural, social and political fields of interest. Each  is run by students and any student may be a member. These clubs and societies allow students to become active members of  a community on campus that is stimulating and opens up new challenges and opportunities.
