​​Career Advice


Prospective students are confronted with a wide variety of programme and career options - undoubtedly an advantage, also a significant challenge. Stellenbosch University prioritises assistance to prospective students in facilitating realistic programme and career choices. It is for this reason that we offer a professional career advice service.


Who can make use of this service?

This service is available to grade 11 and 12 learners.

What does the service entail?

The assessment includes a 4 hour psychometric assessment of personality, aptitude and interests, and a 1 hour individual feedback session, as well as a written report of the results and recommendations.

Testing starts at 08:30 until 12:30, feedback is on the same day (14:00 – 15:00 / 15:15 – 16:15) the afternoon. Recommendations are made based on the client's unique profile and can therefore include programmes at a variety of higher education institutions. This opportunity is offered to all prospective students and not only to those who wish to study at Stellenbosch University.

Cost of the service: The cost is R 2350-00 per client (Monday to Friday)/ R 2900-00 per client (Saturday), payable within 48 hours after booking.
