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.
