Welcome to Stellenbosch University

For Undergraduate Students


Any request that is academically related must be addressed to the Academic Committee via this form.  The Academic Committee will consider

  1. Deviation from the Calendar (pass prerequisites, prerequisites, co-requisites);
  2. Changes in programme or stream and
  3. Deviation from the registered curriculum for modules and/or programmes offered by the Faculty of Science.

The link to the form for requests for changes for the second semester will be live from 01 May to 06 July 2020 to ensure that you receive feedback before the start of the second semester. The Academic Committee will review and consider all requests and provide an outcome on 10 July 2020 via email to your SUN-email address. 


The Faculty has introduced a number of interventions to support undergraduate students, such as a tutor programme in which students with problems are identified early and academic support provided. With regard to our language policy, at the first year level we attempt to provide tuition in Afrikaans and English in parallel groupings, with interpreting services offered as and where needed from the second year level.​

The Faculty awards various medals annually to outstanding students for their academic achievements.
