Keep your hard copies safe as these may be requested in future

All documents submitted in support of your application must be verified for authenticity. This is usually done by submitting hard copies of your documents but due to the current remote-working situation on campus we ask all applications to retain their hardcopies and keep them safe. You may be requested to supply these in future, but please do not send any hard copy documentation to the UCT GSB Breakwater campus unless specifically requested to do so.
