After you are registered, you are an official UCT student for the academic year and eligible for a student card.

How do I get a student card during COVID-19?

All new registered postgraduates who want a UCT student card need to email a colour photo (head & shoulders) together with your student number. The Access Control team will print your UCT student card.

Importantly, your student cards can be collected from the Access Control Office (see B2 on this map) by prior arrangement. Health Science postgrad students can collect their cards from the security desk at the UCT Medical School’s Barnard Fuller building. You will receive an email when your card is ready for collection.
