Science
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​​Following the recent repeal of Covid-19 regulations, the University is ready to resume full face-to-face learning and teaching for the second semester starting on 18 July 2022.

Students are reminded to consult their module frameworks and SUNLearn for updates on second-semester timetables.

The Faculty of Science has introduced a number of interventions to support undergraduate students, such as a tutor programme in which students who are experiencing problems with their studies 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.
