This means students are not only academically well prepared, but also culturally attentive and up to date with global issues.​​ On this page, you will find global learning opportunities for current Stellenbosch University students.

​As part of their studies at Stellenbosch University (SU), students can apply for a semester exchange or winter/summer school opportunity at one of our partner universities. Students can also apply for a travel bursary to attend a self- identified independent summer school or short course. Independent summer schools are short term academic courses hosted by non-partner universities during the summer or winter of the northern or southern hemisphere.

Through internationalisation @ home initiatives Stellenbosch University International gives students an opportunity to develop a global mindset and become engaged citizens. SU students can take part in the following: SU Summer/Winter School, Global Citizenship short course and Matie Buddy programme.
