Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Strategy and Internationalisation
- Prof Hester Klopper​​​​​​

Internationalisat​ion​ and globalisation are at the forefront of conversations in the global educational arena. As higher education becomes more international, cross-border and inter-institutional collaboration becomes ever more important for institutions to support their core functions: learning and teaching, research and innovation, as well as social impact.​

At Stellenbosch University (SU), we value internationalisation – it is one of our main priorities. Our motivations are to enhance SU's profile and reputation, increase the research ability of the institution and add to the graduate skill set of students on all levels.​

Falling in the responsibility area of Prof Hester Klopper, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Strategy and Internationalisation, Stellenbosch University International (SU International) supports the institution's internationalisation activities in the rest of Africa and beyond. She is the first person to hold this post, created in 2016.

The Strategy division, which also forms part of Prof K​lopper's portfolio, provides institutional support. It gives effect to the University's short, medium and long-term strategic goals through the development, implementation and monitoring of specific programmes and projects.
