​​Stellenbosch University's annual Open Day will once again offer the perfect opportunity for Grade 12 learners to obtain information on study opportunities, financial assistance, accommodation and student life.

The Open Day takes place on Saturday, 29 February from 08:00 to 15:00 on the Stellenbosch and Tygerberg campuses.

“The great benefit of an Open Day is that prospective students can interact directly with University staff and senior students to obtain specific information on the various fields of study and support services," says Magdel Pretorius, project manager at SU's Centre for Student Recruitment and Career Advice.

Visitors to the Stellenbosch campus have the option of starting their day of exploration at the welcoming areas on either the Rooiplein or at the Coetzenburg Centre where some of the faculties will be exhibiting. A shuttle service runs between the two venues.  

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences will present an Open Day on the Tygerberg Campus, but will also be present in the Coetzenburg Centre.  Repeated throughout the day will be information sessions on, among others, how to apply, funding your studies, launching your career and student support available (including students with special learning needs). Access the programme at or grab an information pack and map to be handed out on the day on the Rooiplein or at the Coetzenburg Centre.

Maties Sport will be strutting their stuff on the Rooiplein, while the residences will also be open to visitors.

Information officers in blue T-shirts will also be on duty campus-wide to assist visitors with directions and general enquiries.
