The African Gender Institute, within the School of African and Gender Studies, Anthropology and Linguistics, and the Nelson Mandela Foundation collaborated in response to a call from Graca Machel to host Gender in Dialogue within the 12th Nelson Mandela Annual Lectureship series. The Dialogue was convened by Graca Machel, at the University of Cape Town, on Sunday 10th August 2014.

Each year, The University of Cape Town hosts study abroad programmes for international students who wish to spend time at the university. Although all Faculties participate in the programme, Humanities is the most popular academic destination for these students. 

Each year, the tiny Eastern Cape town of Grahamstown plays host to the annual Standard Bank National Youth Jazz Festival. Close to 300 young musicians and over 50 educators and professionals participated in this year’s event. Among them, students from the South African College of Music, who comprised the festival’s National Youth Jazz Band.

South African College of Music student, Siyabulela Sikhokhele Ntlale has received high praise from the Opera fraternity following an announcement that he achieved second position in the 33rd International Hans Gabor Belvedere Competition for young singers. The event was held on the 6th of July in Dusseldorf, Germany.
