Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​Centre for Health Professions Education​

 Extended Degree Programme


The faculty offers extended degree programmes to selected students in the MBChB, and BSc in Physiotherapy programmes. The programmes offer assistance in the developing of students' potential, with the aim to obtain a degree in the respective programmes.  Briefly this amounts to the first year being distributed over two years, with specific interventions built in to facilitate academic support for the students. Several foundational modules together with the main stream modules are offered during the first two years of the Extended Degree programme.
