Students looking to add additional layers of integration into Cape Town’s communities to round out their experience at the University of Cape Town should consider taking a course or two at The Cornerstone Institute.

Cornerstone’s slogan is “Learn to change the world.” The Institute’s work with the community is natural, approached ethically, and at the heart of what they do. Since its foundation in 1970, the institute has been grounded in a highly ethical ethos, emphasising the relationship between leadership and professional integrity. It embraces students from all walks of life, and focuses on the development of leaders.

Cornerstone is a non-profit, fully accredited Private Higher Education Institution. It presents an intimate learning environment where students get to know one another and their faculty and staff. Most students are local Capetonians and small class sizes with frequent discussion assure you a chance to get to know local students.
