Adult Matric

Our Adult Matric provides a second chance for those who were unable, or never given the opportunity, to write their National Senior Certificate (NSC) when they were young — because it’s never too late to enable a better future for you and your family.

“A matric certificate can transform young and old people’s futures alike, by signalling their knowledge and skills to employers, creating pathways to further education, and ultimately improving their chances of finding work, keeping a job, and earning a higher salary.” 
- Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng

A word from UCT's Vice Chancellor

As an inclusive and innovative African institution, the University of Cape Town is committed to playing its part in addressing the systemic challenges facing our education system. As a result, we have taken the bold step to launch an innovative online high school in January 2022, where our academic excellence can be extended to high school learners across the country.
