Medicine and Health Sciences
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​​Prospective Undergraduate Students

​Health Sciences graduates at Stellenbosch University are nationally and internationally renowned for their ethical and caring attitude, as well as the high quality of healthcare 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. 

Open Day 2021

This year, the Open day at Stellenbosch University was offered virtually. If you missed it, visit the Virtual Open day webpage – it’s the same info but from the comfort of your home.

Tygerberg Campus Tours

Guided by current TygerMatie students, tours visit the main attractions of Tygerberg Campus and also give parents and prospective applicants a current student's perspective of life here. Tours are offered Monday to Friday (9:00 – 15:00). Due to a large number of visitors and time constraints, tours do not visit residences at any time. No tours are held over weekends.

Information Sessions

Information sessions are structured to give prospective applicants an overview of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Science's application process, admission criteria, financial aid system, academic organisation, and student life. Parents and students attend together and are encouraged to ask questions.

We welcome school groups of 10 or more to campus for group visit sessions. Group visits are conducted most weekdays all year long and we recommend scheduling your visit at least two weeks in advance. We ask that no matter what grade your students are in, you keep your group size to fewer than 60 participants.

All individual and group visits must be arranged in advance with the Office for Student Recruitment and Support
