Afrikaans & Dutch
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Short Courses

The Department of Afrikaans and Dutch offers several credit-bearing postgraduate short courses within the field of language practice and acquisition. These courses are each spread over the course of one academic semester, and are presented as distance education, with two compulsory contact sessions per semester on the SU Campus. These courses are therefore particularly suitable for those who wish to acquire further skills, but who cannot engage in full-time postgraduate studies. Assessment will take place, with successful candidates receiving a competency certificate from the SU.

The following short courses will be presented:
