Given the academic rigor of the programme, and the level of responsibility required to work with marginalized youth in an unfamiliar social and cultural context, a minimum of two years of strong college-level academic work is required for admission to the programme.  Students should recognize that our classes are registered as graduate level courses at The University of Cape Town, and the expectations in terms of reading and writing are intense.


The cost of the program is for 2016 is $20,000 (£14,000) per 24-week semester, which covers student fees, accommodation, meals, and all domestic travel (flights, hotels, entry fees, etc.).  In 2017 the price of the program will increase to $25,000 (£17,000.)  Students are encouraged to work with their home institutions to apply for financial aid, scholarships and fellowships.
