Student advisors

Jameson Hall steps
 

The Faculty of Humanities has a team of curriculum advisors for undergraduate students, available throughout the semester (see consultation times below). When you meet with a curriculum advisor, always make sure you bring along:

  1. a printout of your academic record, and
  2. a Change of Curriculum form. 

Change of curriculum forms can be downloaded from the UCT Student Administration web page. Click on the Change of Curriculum form (ACA09) (see right-hand sidebar also). We encourage you to visit UCT Student Administration web page regularly since most administrative forms are available from this URL. 

Your academic record must be printed off the UCT Peoplesoft system on the web; make sure you have printed a new version since the last time you made changes to your curriculum. Note that the academic record runs a report which may give you a page listing all the times you have requested the record in the past; if it does this, make sure you click on the most recent date, not an old one which may not be up to date.
