Welcome to Stellenbosch University
pgo_blank.pngWelcome to the Postgraduate Office

The Postgraduate Office (PGO) is a central support and liaison office for postgraduate students. Located within the Division for Research Development (DRD), the PGO is continuously working towards streamlining and enhancing the whole postgraduate experience for both supervisors and students. The PGO seeks to create enabling postgraduate environments in the faculties and support service divisions, thereby improving the overall quality of the research experience for postgraduate students. It approaches its task as an institutional representative to market postgraduate opportunities to prospective students during the postgraduate lifecycle (from application to graduation).

The PGO focuses on different aspects of postgraduate support:

Postgraduate Enrolment Support – provides prospective postgraduate applicants and continuing postgraduate students with an advisory service and enrolment support. This includes the management of institutional joint degree programmes.  

Postgraduate Funding and Support – provides information, administers financial support and also engages with broader institutional support structures for postgraduate students, typically as these relate to psycho-social support; and

Postgraduate Skills Development Support – provides information about and access to opportunities and resources at Stellenbosch University that can assist postgraduate students in their efforts to develop and enhance the skills they will require to complete their postgraduate studies and research.
