Cape Town Global Round
The Global Round in Cape Town (August 11-15) will offer the same events as our Hanoi Global Round in a smaller and more boutique setting.
You’ll experience scavenger hunts, keynote speeches, panel discussions, our signature Scholar’s Ball, and, of course, all the competitive and community-building events that drew you to the World Scholar’s Cup in the first place, from the Debate Showcase to the Scholar’s Bowl.
Just as at the Global Round in Hanoi and Athens, many of the top teams will prequalify for the Tournament of Champions at Yale University. And, just as at the Global Round, participants will learn, debate, and build new friendships among fellow scholars from all over the world.
