2020 has taught us many lessons, and one of them is that uncertainty is part of our lives. With the current state of things, it can be difficult to be excited or to plan for events that are scheduled for this year. Nevertheless, we hope that these events will continue to happen and that we will be able to enjoy them.
UCT’s Summer school
UCT’s Centre for Extra Mural Studies is offering their yearly Summer School again from 11 – 29 January. This is ideal for life-long learners, featuring over 90 courses from a variety of disciplines for a period of three weeks. This year, UCT’s Summer School will happen online, making it possible for participants from around the world to join in. Learn more about El Camino de Santiago, the South African economy or take a language course. To see what’s on offer, have a look at their brochure, and book your spot here.
The Cape Town Cycle Tour is envisioned for 14 March 2021. The event organisers are carefully monitoring the Covid-situation and are planning to adapt the race accordingly.
