Movie night - On one night each week, we will be showing a film at the Graça Machel Hall of Residence. These events are free to all LSE-UCT Summer School participants and normally include a screening of one classic or contemporary African film, along with some popcorn to make the evenings even more enjoyable.
LSE-UCT Summer School photo competition - We hold a photo competition each year which gives participants the opportunity to share their experience and adventures. We usually have five categories and announce the winners at the Farwell Dinner on the last day after the final exam. Yes, there are prizes!
Braai - There will be an informal ‘braai’ (barbeque) at the end of the first week.
Farewell dinner - We invite all participants to attend a farewell dinner on the final evening of the LSE-UCT Summer School, along with faculty and administrative staff from the programme. The event takes place at a local hotel and is a wonderful occasion to celebrate the unique experience the LSE-UCT Summer School offers. The dinner is also a final opportunity to network with the fascinating faculty, staff and students who participated in this programme before saying goodbye to the great friends you have made - or preferably - "see you again next year!"
"The most memorable moment was the final dinner. This was truly a
celebration of our achievements, and was even more special because of Vice
Chancellor Mamokgethi Phakeng’s speech. The positive energy in the room allowedus to conclude LSE-UCT Summer School on an extremely high note! It also instilleda sense of unity which I carried with me as I returned home." Christian Pierce, COPPEAD Graduate School of Business, Brazil
