Some of your questions may include:

  • What can you study with us?
  • What are the requirements for the programmes you want to apply for?
  • How and when will you know that you are conditionally admitted? And when will it be final?
  • How do you secure accommodation on campus? What if you don't want to live in residence? What is a PSO?
  • What if you have applied for residence accommodation, and haven't been placed?
  • How do you apply for financial aid?
  • What if you are unsure as to what exactly you may need but you know you need help?

  • While we are able to verify whether a person has applied, has registered, written an exam and its results, has a specified qualification from Stellenbosch or not, we are not able to release this to any person other than the owner of the information. This means we cannot disclose this to parents, guardians and/or other third parties.
