Cape Town brochureChange in Modern South Africa

Why you should go

Since the end Apartheid in 1994, Cape Town became and remains one of the most popular tourist cities in the world. The city is famed for its natural beauty, a distinctively relaxed cosmopolitan milieu, and the storied role it played in the decades-long struggle against Apartheid. Sporting several universities within its metropolitan boundaries, the Global Seminar offers an ideal environment for students to combine a deep acquaintance with South African history with a well-structured sojourn into the cultural life of a sophisticated African city.
