Welcome to Stellenbosch University


  • Every year, PRASA Chair members attend local and international conferences that are hosted by various academic and non-academic bodies and institutions. We always try to present papers and in the few cases that we don't, we attend for the sake of getting exposure and establishing networks and collaborations.
