The University can unfortunately not guarantee any student sufficient financial assistance to cover all study and living expenses.
Students are advised to plan their finances carefully and to check whether they meet the basic requirements before applying for a bursary.
It is important for prospective postgraduate students to contact the department in which they intend studying, not only to seek financial assistance but, more importantly, to discuss the nature of the postgraduate programme and to lay the basis for a good working relationship. No bursary will be granted to a student without the department's recommendation.
International students should not rely on obtaining funds in the R.S.A. but should seek funding in their country of origin before coming to Stellenbosch University.
