       The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSwD) is committed to promoting and facilitating the right
       to quality education for persons with disabilities in higher education. We advocate for intentional

       of students with disabilities. Our students are the heartbeat of our services rendered, and are viewed
       as the champion in their own learning. In order to facilitate students with disabilities’ adjustment to
       the overall university environment, we encourage early disclosure and pre-admission engagement
       around disability related needs in order to allow sufficient time for all preparations to be arranged.

       As a registered UWC student, you are strongly encouraged to disclose your disability. This will allow
       you to access our disability specific learning support services as you contact our office.
       Services provided include reasonable accommodations within the following areas:
       • Facilitation of disability related learning needs to be communicated to relevant departments

       Sport at the University of the Western Cape has, as everything else associated with this
       institution, grown rapidly over the past five decades when the university was established in 1959.
       From one sport offered in 1965, UWC boasts 22 sporting codes today and our athletes
       consistently excel on the field of play.

       This we have achieved through strategic investment in our infrastructure, facilities and coaching
       staff. Because at UWC we believe that we must strive to be excellent in all our activities, be it in
       the realm of learning and teaching, research and innovation or on the sports field.

       The result of our investment and commitment to our athletes is shown in UWC being ranked in
       the Top 6 tier of South African university sport.

       But what we are most proud of is the development of our student athletes across many codes,
       particularly the five – cricket, rugby, football, athletics and swimming – that we have identified
       as our flagship disciplines.

       At UWC, we believe in our students’ potential to develop their skills and broaden their horizon
       and we extend this philosophy to our entire campus community. It is for this reason that we
       place significant emphasis on our ongoing plans to foster a health and wellbeing culture on
       campus.

       Ours is an abiding commitment to developing sports within the University because it plays a vital
       role in the full educational experience of all students at UWC.
