LSE-UCT July School

London School of Economics and Political Science

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the University of Cape Town (UCT) are delighted to offer the fourth LSE-UCT July School in 2017. This innovative and prestigious two-week 'summer school' style programme provides the highest calibre students, graduates and professionals from across the globe with an exciting opportunity to study important social science issues relevant to Africa today across subject areas as diverse as international relations, economics, management, government, geography, law, media and social policy.

Why attend the LSE-UCT July School?

Here are the top 5 reasons our previous participants have rated the LSE-UCT July School so highly:

  1. The LSE-UCT July School provides a unique opportunity to learn about Africa from within Africa, but with a truly global perspective.
  2. The programme is taught by outstanding faculty from the University of Cape Town and LSE -  two of the world’s leading institutions for teaching and research.
  3. The diversity of attendees - in 2015, the July School was attended by 105 participants from more than 40 countries across Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas, around one third of whom were graduate professionals. This enriches class discussions, social events and networking opportunities.
  4. Doing something different makes a huge difference to academic and professional career prospects; our participants like to stand out from the crowd as future leaders in their fields.
  5. The location - Cape Town is a beautiful, cosmopolitan city and is, in many ways, the gateway to Africa. The stunning campus, at the foot of Table Mountain, also offers an inspirational location for study and lively debate.
