There is no minimum grade requirement for applications to the programme, but applicants should be prepared to actively participate in a rigorous, intensive academic programme run by two leading research and teaching universities. It is expected that all participants will engage with the extensive reading list as required by their course and contribute in class discussions. Due to the intensive nature of the programme, students follow a single course for the whole duration of the LSE-UCT July School.
Generally speaking, a 100 level course is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree, a 200 level course is equivalent to the second year of an undergraduate degree, and a 300 level course is equivalant to the final year of an undergraduate degree; however, we also welcome students and professionals on all levels of courses. Students who complete their High School studies in 2018 and hold a confirmed offer to begin university in 2018 (or in 2019 after a gap year) may also apply.
