Guidelines for Appointments

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Faculty of AgriSciences

The Faculty of AgriSciences at Stellenbosch University (SU) is held in high esteem at national and international levels for the quality of its training and research and also as consultant in the agricultural and forestry industry.   Students enrolled in the Faculty's under- and postgraduate programmes are expertly trained to become leaders and managers in the various sectors of the industry.  Throughout the RSA – and abroad – alumni of the Faculty can be found in top positions.

When SU was officially established in 1918, Agriculture was one of the first four faculties and right from the outset it made an indelible contribution to agricultural education and research in South Africa.   In 2006 the Faculties of Agriculture and Forestry merged to become the Faculty of AgriSciences as it is today.  The Faculty has 1271 undergraduate and 461 postgraduate students.
