Cape Town Office

Ouma Mpela, ISA Cape Town Resident Director, is available at all times, and along with the resident staff will conduct the ISA Bridging Cultures Program, lead excursions, arrange tutoring and provide support during the enrollment process. The Cape Town office is located within walking distance of the University of Cape Town as well as their student residence, so students can stop in whenever they have a chance. Campus shops and restaurants are located around the office making it an ideal location for students. During the normal office hours, students will gather for regular meetings with the Resident Director, find out about upcoming excursions, learn about activities and cultural events, and utilize academic and travel resources.

In addition to the ISA office, you will also have full access to all of the resources available through your host university which can include counseling services, a health center, academic advising, tutoring, libraries, internet access, and organized clubs and activities.
