Summer School Extension
The annual Summer School and the Summer School Extension lecture & short-course programmes aim to make the research and the academic and knowledge resources of the University of Cape Town accessible to the broader public.
The Summer School Extension programme was initiated in June 2014, with the specific aim of providing ad hoc public lectures, short-courses adn other programmes to Cape Town’s adult learners throughout the year, outside of the regular two-week Summer School programme in January, and to make it possible for the public to engage with a range of topics such as philosophy, literature, astronomy, science and history.
The Extension Programme consists two of main programmes:
- The Fine Minds Radio Lecture Series (in collaboration with Fine Music Radio)
- The Summer School Extension Lecture Programme (including our WW1 Lecture Series)
