With an extensive network of partner institutions on six continents, Stellenbosch University (SU) is changing the lives of its students by offering them a truly international experience. SU International facilitates student exchanges with more than 100 institutions abroad, from SciencePo and Leipzig to West Virginia and Nagoya University.
You can apply to study on exchange at a partner university for one or two semesters. This section provides you with guidelines and advice on various exchange-related issues. Reading through it will give you a clearer idea of what a student exchange entails, and whether it’s something you would like to consider.
The target group for semester exchanges are undergraduate and postgraduate students, excluding PhD students. The reason why PhD students are not included, is because they are normally not recognized as exchange students at partner universities, but rather seen as visiting scholars.
