UWC's mission statement includes this summary of the institutions: "A place of quality, a place to grow from hope to action through knowledge." UWC's faculty are willing to "walk the extra mile" for the committed student and that is apparent both inside the classroom and outside. This is a student centered institution where teaching takes priority over research at the undergraduate level.
All courses are taught in English with the exception of advanced language courses. While Liberal Arts and Humanities hold an important place at UWC, equally as important and strong are the faculties dedicated to practical fields such as Education, Law, Health Sciences, and Nursing. UWC has the only schools of Pharmacy and Dentistry in the Western Cape - open to undergraduates as well as graduate students. The UWC faculty is well known internationally and has many partnerships with universities and institutes elsewhere in Africa and around the globe. In addition to your coursework at UWC, all students are required to participate in the core seminar, "Contemporary Issues in South Africa", which is intended to provide a forum for reflection and analysis on current issues and challenges facing South Africans.
