International exchange students add a vital element to the classroom mix at the UCT GSB.
The academic year at the UCT GSB starts in January and ends in December. Exchange students have a choice of joining us during Terms 1, 3 and/or 4 when the MBA core and elective courses are offered. For more information, contact our Exchange Programme Coordinator, Nqubeko Hlekwayo:

The GSB is prohibited from registering foreign students unless they are in possession of a valid visa for South Africa for the duration of their study period. It is every student's own responsibility to ensure that he / she is in possession of a valid visa to enter South Africa before travelling. We advise all students to contact their nearest South African Embassy or Consulate before travelling to South Africa, in order to confirm visa requirements.
