Full-degree Postgraduate

The information contained in this section applies to you if you are a South African or international applicant wishing to pursue postgraduate studies at Stellenbosch University (SU). While this website provides an overview of postgraduate studies at Stellenbosch University, a detailed website dedicated to information on postgraduate studies at SU, can be located here.

Across its ten faculties, Stellenbosch University offers a comprehensive range of postgraduate programmes (diplomas, honours, master' s and PhD). 

Very often it is most useful to identify and communicate with a potential academic supervisor, before applying. This is especially true if you plan on enrolling for a research-based degree programme (master' s or doctoral).

Most postgraduate programmes have a designated coordinator who can help you to get in touch with the most appropriate person in your field. It is thus useful to communicate with this person in advance. To find the details of the postgraduate coordinator relevant to your programme, please click here or visit our website for Prospective Postgraduate Studies.

In this manner, a whole range of questions related to actual projects, funding opportunities and other matters can normally be addressed. This can save a lot of time and effort in helping you to submit a well-prepared, relevant application.

Many departments may also require additional information from you that is not covered by the official university application form. All applicants must however submit an official university application form.
