Stellenbosch University will be offering an online onboarding programme for all provisionally accepted first years during February 2021. Everything you need to know about SU and your faculty is just a few clicks away! Please note that access to this programme does not mean you have been accepted to SU. 

The programme is available on SUNLearn (the University’s learning management system) from 1 February 2021.​ This is where you will be spending a lot of time as a student, so this is an effective way to familiarise yourself with the platform. The following topics (apart from the faculty-specific information) are explained:
Making the most of my 24 hours (time management)
Rocking university life (success and well-being)
Go with the flow (stress management)
Ace your studies (exam and study skills)
Money matters (financial literacy)​
Read like a pro (academic reading)
Be the best student you can be (I-FlourishWell4Life programme)
In an extended question and answer section you will be able to search for the answer to many of the questions you may have about SU and even post your own. Videos of students sharing ways to cope at university, a virtual campus tour, and info on available support are easily accessible. You will also be able to connect with some of SU’s mentors.

For the best SUNLearn experience, use Google Chrome as your default browser​.​
