First Year Guide


The time has finally arrived! The SRC First Year Guide is here. This is a welcome magazine written for students, by students. In it, you will find all you need to thrive at UCT. This magazine contains everything they didn’t tell you in orientation!


The First Year Guide introduces you to the SRC, and orientates you in the broader parts of student life. We introduce you to the parts of the university experience not covered in O-week. Explore Cape Town on a budget with our frugal recommendations. Learn how to survive your first year by reading our advice columns. Explore how Student Governance can help YOU! Find student businesses you can support. All of this and more can be found in the 2021 First Year Guide.


This magazine was a labour of love from us to you. We hope you enjoy it! All advertising proceeds from the guide go to assisting students with historic debt.
