Exciting experience

Business Studies, 2021
Overall
I was very nervous to start this course because I was fresh out of high school with no business experience, let alone strategic management and most of the people who had applied for this course were business owners or directors; overall I felt I was going to fail. I am so glad I was wrong! The course ended up being the most fun I've ever had - the content, the networking, and especially the graded projects. It was easy to understand and interpreter but most importantly everything we learned was easy to implement in our personal lives as well as our working environments. I would however, have liked a bit more feedback in terms of the grading process and how I could improve.

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.

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.
