The Faculty of Science at Stellenbosch University would like to extend a warm welcome to our first-year students of 2021.

Despite the many challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown regulations, we are ready to provide you with a world-class education in the natural sciences, both in person and via our online platforms.

Before welcoming you to the campus on 4 March, we encourage you to make use of the on-boarding programme on SUNLearn and to familiarise yourself with the workings of the Faculty and its academic programmes. Please use your student e-mail address and password to access the Stellenbosch University's general First-year onboarding programme, as well as the Faculty of Science's specific onboarding programme at these links:

Prof Stan du Plessis, chair of the Institutional Committee for Business Continuity of Stellenbosch University, reassured staff and students of the University's commitment to successfully present and complete the 2021 academic year: “We are better prepared this year, and I am confident that we will face the challenges that this year will undoubtedly bring with equal aplomb".

And a word from Prof Louise Warnich, Dean of the Faculty of Science: “I hope you feel at home soon, in spite of the unusual circumstances of this academic year. All the best with your new life as a Matie!"​
