The LSE-UCT July School will offer courses from across the social sciences, all with reference and relevance to Africa today. Participants will select one intensive course to study for the two-week programme.
Each course will be delivered by one or more leading academic from LSE and/ or UCT, supported by teaching assistants, usually PhD students from the partner institutions.
Each course will normally comprise 48 contact hours over two weeks, usually arranged as 36 hours of lectures and 12 hours of classes or seminars. The course is assessed through mid-term assessments and final examination, allowing the award of a graded certificate and transcript to participants who successfully complete the programme.
