Welcome to Stellenbosch University

For Undergraduate Students


All requests to deviate from you current prescribed curriculum must be addressed to the Academic Committee via this form.  The Academic Committee will consider the following requests:

    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 online form for requests regarding the first semester will be live from 1 October 2020 to 28 February 2021. The Academic Committee will meet on the following dates to ensure that students receive feedback before registration and commencement of the first semester:

  1. 30 November 2020
  2. 18 December 2020
  3. 29 January 2021
  4. 5 March 2021

Students will be notified of the outcome via their SUN-email address within three days after the scheduled meeting. The decision of the Academic Committee is final and no late requests will be considered. 


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.
