The University of Cape Town started the 100-UP programme to support learners in under-resourced communities to navigate entry into university and to thrive once they are there.

Each year 100 grade 10 learners are selected from different schools.

Tracey Lange chats to Vice-Chancellor, Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng to find out more about the initiative.

We select them from Khayelitsha schools, Mitchells Plain and Philippi. And the idea is not just to make sure that they get into university but that they succeed once they get there.

Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng, UCT Vice-Chancellor,

This is important because we know how difficult it is for youth from marginalised communities to get into university.

Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng, Vice Chancellor of the UCT

We've been running for 10 years and over 1,500 students have come through the 100-UP programme and enrolled at university.

Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng, Vice Chancellor of the UCT

This programme is making a huge impact and some of them have graduated already.
