Stellenbosch University requires funding beyond what government can give so that it can be successful in attracting the very best student talent. On average an undergraduate student needs R115,000 p.a. (for an average of 3 years) for tuition, accommodation and living expenses. On average a postgraduate student requires a minimum of R95,000 p.a (master's level) and more at PhD or postdoctoral level.
