UCT is a research-intensive African university. Their research takes place within a number of formal research structures or grouping and research at UCT is also increasingly drawn together into interdisciplinary hubs that encompass a critical mass of researchers able to leverage South Africa’s geographic advantage, and show potential for strong collaboration nationally, across the continent and globally.
