First established in 1998, Trinity in Cape Town provides students with the opportunity to spend a semester or year in this fascinating city while studying at prestigious local universities.



Trinity in Cape Town offers a liberal arts curriculum with courses taught in English in a variety of disciplines. Students choose from two top tier universities, each offering a unique perspective and experience.


Housing & Meals

Students on the Trinity in Cape Town program live in self-catered apartments in the Mowbray neighborhood, close to the University of Cape Town. There are two students to each apartment and each student has their own bedroom. There is no meal plan so students are responsible for shopping and cooking for themselves at nearby markets.


Experiential Learning

Through the Internship Seminar, students are placed with local NGO’s and schools which provide an opportunity to integrate with the country and culture in a more personal way. In addition, academic excursions are an integral part of the Trinity in Cape Town curriculum and programing.
