Pharmaceutical services are accessible to all UCT students.

The services offered include

  • Preparation and dispensing of medicine prescribed;
  • Sale of over-the-counter medication;
  • Information and advice on medicine; and
  • Other health-related issues.

Essential medication is sold at a cost price. Specialised or chronic medicines will require a prescription from a medical practitioner. The student will have to purchase this at a local pharmacy or be referred to the nearest community clinic.

For a collection of repeat medication (strictly for students who have an existing prescription at the Pharmacy), please use the online booking system.
