Medicine and Health Sciences
Welcome to Stellenbosch University


Health Sciences graduates at Stellenbosch University are nationally and internationally renowned for their ethical and caring attitude, as well as the high quality of health care they deliver to their clients, patients and communities.

The Faculty's endeavour to ensure that the student population reflects the demographic profile of the country makes this campus a true multicultural home. The campus offers a language-friendly environment that accommodates different language groups.

Access to undergraduate programmes in Health Sciences is subject to a structured selection process. Student numbers in Health Sciences programmes are limited by Health Professions Council regulations, the available infrastructure and budget of the health services and the university, and the high demands of the programmes, which usually can only be completed successfully by students who performed above average at school.​​​
