Welcome to the Professional Communication's Unit

The Professional Communication Unit (PCU) joined the School of Management Studies in 2004 and is located in the Leslie Commerce Building on the upper campus.

Introduction to PCU

Over three decades ago (1975) the PCU originated in the Commerce faculty with the aim of preparing students for the communicative demands of their professions. Not only has the faculty grown faster than any other at UCT, now comprising a third of the student body but the communicative demands on the business professional have grown exponentially too. In order to keep up with these demands, PCU offers a host of short and core courses to both under- and post-graduate Commerce and Science students. 

The services of the Unit are also available to:

UCT staff, professional firms, commercial and industrial organisations and community and service organisations. Contact us so we can tell you how we customise course material to align with your corporate requirements and objectives. We use in-house examples so that all exercise material and discussion remain meaningful and relevant. See links to Consultancy Services and How We Teach under Courses for more details.
