Accommodation near The University of the Western Cape

The University of the Western Cape (UWC) is one of the 4 most prominent tertiary education institutions in the Western Cape. It is located in Bellville, in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town.

The university has a history deeply entrenched with the Apartheid system. It was established in 1959 as the University College of the Western Cape - a constituent college of the University of South Africa. Only so-called 'coloureds' were permitted entry into the institution and while 'black' people were banned outright from any tertiary education, the education offered at the college was certainly substandard, only preparing graduates for low to mid-level jobs in schools, civil service and other areas which strictly served only 'coloureds'.

The university played an active role in the fight against Apartheid, an ugly period in South African history which still (indirectly) drives the university's key emphasis on access, equity and quality, where education is concerned.

The university boasts 8 faculties: arts, community & health sciences, dentistry, economic & management sciences, education, law and natural sciences. Each faculty has numerous departments and offers a range of valuable and interesting degree options.

UWC has a highly skilled staff with 50 percent of them holding a doctorate. Furthermore, UWC prides itself as a research institution too. Most departments have graduate programmes and at any given time, 20 percent of the university's student body consists of postgraduate students completing research.

The university strives to offer a stimulating and supportive environment for all its students and to this end there are many resources available to students.

Kuils River is a nice place to stay. It is small, but busy. It has most of the things one would look for i.e shopping malls, banks etc.and transport can be easily accessed. It is a good place to visit and experience.
