Welcome to the Faculty of AgriSciences
The Faculty of AgriSciences at
Stellenbosch University (SU) is held in high esteem at national and
international levels for the quality of its training and research and
also as consultant in the agricultural and forestry industry. Students
enrolled in the Faculty's under- and postgraduate programmes are
expertly trained to become leaders and managers in the various sectors
of the industry. Throughout the RSA – and abroad – alumni of the
Faculty can be found in top positions.
When SU was officially established in
1918, Agriculture was one of the first four faculties and right from the
outset it made an indelible contribution to agricultural education and
research in South Africa. In 2006 the Faculties of Agriculture and
Forestry merged to become the Faculty of AgriSciences as it is today.
The Faculty has about 1500 undergraduate and 661 postgraduate students.
