About the University of Cape Town

UCT was founded in 1829 as the South African College, a high school for boys.

The College had a small tertiary-education facility that grew substantially after 1880 when the discovery of gold and diamonds in the north – and the resulting demand for skills in mining – gave it the financial boost it needed to grow.

The College developed into a fully-fledged university during the period 1880 to 1900, thanks to increased funding from private sources and the government.
