University of Cape Town

The University of Cape Town wanted to reach new participants and bring the quality of their education to the global stage. And together, that’s exactly what we’ve done.

Realizing the potential.

Dedicated to showing the world the power of African scholarship, the University of Cape Town delivers a vibrant, intellectual community designed to connect people from around the world. And to expand that mission—and really further the diversity in, and presence of, the school—they turned to online education.

Together, we’ve launched dozens of online short courses, all created both to bring Cape Town into the heart of the academic conversation and to empower participants across the world with access to high-quality, future-forward education from Africa’s leading university.

As a working professional, 2U gave me a great opportunity to work and study simultaneously. I was able to apply what I’d learned in the workplace almost instantly.
