Customize your study abroad experience. Our Open Campus program at the CIEE Global Institute – Cape Town offers maximum flexibility to engage and experience Cape Town in your own way. Match the academic experience with your interests, aspirations, and degree requirements. Through coursework in a range of subjects and hands-on exploration through excursions, and cultural events, you’ll gain critical insight into contemporary Cape Town.

Witness and take part in the complex process of transformation occurring in South Africa. During courses, community engagement activities, excursions, and more, you’ll trace the impact of colonialism on the indigenous peoples; examine the emergence and significance of apartheid; and explore the role this fascinating country’s history continues to have on society today. You’ll acquire a greater understanding of issues around several topics in contemporary South Africa including economics, health, politics, the environment, etc., and how these issues inform the discourse on poverty and development and their relationship to globalization.
