The number one thing we hear from students who study abroad in Cape Town? "I had no idea I was going to love it so much." Here's why:



IT'S BREATHTAKING                      

Over and over again Cape Town, South Africa, has earned the title of one of the most beautiful places on earth.




Volunteer abroad as part of your coursework to support the local community and give back as you learn about South Africa's complicated past.




Studying abroad in Cape Town will take you on more adventures that you could expect—hiking Table Mountain, exploring local beaches, swimming with penguins, and more!




The current strength of the U.S. Dollar against the South African Rand means the cost of living in Cape Town (think food and fun) won't break the bank.




Take courses in English at the University of Cape Town (one of the most prestigious universities in Africa!)—with one of the most diverse student bodies you can find.

Sometimes, the things you least expect are the ones that surprise you the most. Get ready to fall in love with Cape Town, South Africa.
