UCT the leading university in Africa and among 100 best in the world

Overall
UCT is the leading University in Africa. It has been ranked number one since the last 20 years. The lecturers are highly qualified and have conducted numerous research  that impacted the life of society. The life students is fabulous with their famous jamie shuttle to transport students in every area of the city for free. The wellness center that help students who are depressed or have other mental issues is another example of how students wellness is given priority. I personally liked how international students are treated  within IAPO (international Academic Programs office) when it comes to visa extension, helping in accommodation search and so many more. UCT is just an amazing place to study simply because it hosts almost all nationalities of the world.

South Africa is generally characterized by criminality and some cases have been reported within the campus. As a student you need to be vigilant all the time and avoid to walk alone in isolated areas

Personal recommendation
Beautiful campus.. halfway up a mountain! The walk really isn't that bad, so if you have time in the morning try walking to class. Also, the schedule is kind of like a High School schedule. There is 1st period, 2nd period, 3rd.. lunch ( an hour where all students/staff have off for lunch). You won't have class during all those periods though.

Personal recommendation
Take classes that interest you but you maybe couldn't take at your home university. Also, try new things you wouldn't do at home.
