Faculty arrangements for Augmented Remote Teaching, Learning and Assessment​​


Mode of learning and teaching

Stellenbosch University remains a residential institution, and we intend returning to full face-to-face mode as soon as possible. Yet we are still in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. The national state of disaster has not been lifted, and restrictions remain in place on the number of people allowed in lecture halls and other venues.

Therefore, in terms of teaching and learning, we have decided to continue in ARTLA mode, i.e. remote teaching and learning, augmented with as much face-to-face time as possible. This will be in place for the whole of the first semester. Assessment will take place in sit-down mode on campus and will be invigilated.

To optimise students’ on-campus experience, classrooms and residences will be utilised to the maximum permissible capacity. As was the case in 2020 and 2021, faculties will be publishing details about the mode of each module on their respective webpages. The faculty pages can be accessed via the links below.

In keeping with our commitment to data-informed decision making, we are monitoring the coronavirus pandemic very closely to ensure that we can safely proceed in this way. Should there be any developments that require a change to this plan, we will inform you as soon as possible.
