"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela, awarded an honorary doctorate by Stellenbosch University,1996
Graduating from university is a big step in your life's journey. Once you have obtained your degree, you form part of the alumni community and Stellenbosch University remains your intellectual home. The Alumni Relations Office believes the success of a university depends greatly on the participation of its alumni, therefore we strive to keep you connected to your alma mater long after the euphoria of obtaining your qualification/s has died down.
