Program Description:

Program Overview


Live and study in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa, featuring historic architecture, rich cultural heritage, and easy access to outdoor and sporting activities. Stellenbosch is in the heart of South Africa's wine country, providing the cuisine, culture, and stunning scenery that entails. Surrounded by mountains in the Jonkershoek Valley, it offers the best of both worlds: a small, historic, university town with convenient access to the amenities of the bigger metropolitan area of Cape Town.

Program Focus

The program at Stellenbosch University offers the opportunity to create an educational program that meets your personal and academic goals. Choose courses for international students designed to familiarize you with South Africa’s unique culture, history, and politics, and “Mainstream” courses offered in a wide variety of disciplines that are open to all SU students.  Stellenbosch University focuses on inclusivity, diversity, and using its academic excellence and research activities to find sustainable solutions to some of South Africa and Africa's greatest challenges. Specifically, the university promotes a science-for-society approach, aimed at improving people's lives by eradicating poverty, and promoting human dignity and health, democracy and human rights, safety and security, and a sustainable environment and competitive industry.

During summer term, students can enroll in a General Elective program, that offers a variety of courses from a range of disciplines or they can select a specialized track of study.  The specialized study tracks available during summer are:  Learning, Sustainability, and Community Engagement; Doing Business in South Africa; or Public Health.
