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 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. 


Campus Tours: Tygerberg Campus

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.

Prospective students/parents are most welcome to visit our campus  and can contact Sandra Josias, directly on or or +27 21 938 9789 to book a tour.
