Program Overviewsouthafrica
This program is offered in collaboration with Veritas Christian Study Abroad at the University of Cape Town.
Established in 1829 as a school for boys, the University of Cape Town (UCT) is South Africa's oldest university and one of the continent's leading teaching and research institutions. Affectionately known as the Mother City, Cape Town was founded in 1652—South Africa's oldest city. Cape Town is rated as one of the most beautiful cities in the world with a backdrop of flat-topped Table Mountain juxtaposed by the sweep of the Atlantic Ocean in the foreground. Veritas is a division of  International Studies Abroad (ISA).  You will be attending classes with ISA students as well as Veritas students.

Students are required to take a Comparative Religions course or an International Missions/Service-learning practicum taught by local Veritas staff. The remainder of the courses will be taken at the University of Cape Town (UCT)

Students have the opportunity to travel on several excursions including the Aquila Game Reserve, Robben Island Tour, Cape Peninsula, and Hermanus.

Program Fees
Students pay their regular George Fox tuition and room and aboard and continue to receive all of their financial aid.  Due to the high cost of some programs an additional fee may be charged.  The student is responsible for round trip airfare.  There also may be an additional charge for a visa. The fee does include emergency travel insurance.

The student will fill out two applications:
• George Fox off-campus application form
The Veritas Christian Study Abroad application should only be completed after being informed from the George Fox Director of Study Abroad that you are accepted for an off-campus study semester.
