Proof of registration

UCT invoices can take up to 10 working days from the date of request. Should you need proof of registration urgently for any reason, we will be happy to supply you with a letter confirming your registration and giving the course details. To expedite this process, please send the course administrator an email explaining what the letter is for (e.g. visa procurement) and supply your details that need to appear on the letter (e.g. passport number).

Refunds and Cancellations

Once your registration form has been received and confirmed, your name will be added to the class list. Submitting a registration form is considered a commitment to attend the course, and costs will therefore be incurred on your behalf in expectation of your attendance.

If you are no longer able to attend a course, your cancellation must be submitted to us in writing and must be received one week before the start of the course or the full course fee will be charged.

If you are unable to attend due to medical reasons, please send us a medical certificate so that we can refund you.


You will be sent a digital copy of your certificate only. Hard copies can be arranged with the department on request.
