Medical Aid

The South African Department of Home Affairs requires Proof of Medical cover registered with the SA Council for Medical Schemes in terms of the Medical Schemes Act, 1998 and paid for the duration of studies annually. Proof of membership is required for the study visa application and prior to registration at SU.  

Students are strongly advised to read the contents of their medical aid carefully and deal directly with the provider.

Please note that Stellenbosch University is not affiliated to any medical aid  provider. Stellenbosch University accepts any medical aid as long as it is registered in South Africa. Stellenbosch University International can facilitate students with information only to Momentum Health.  Students do not necessarily have to be covered by Momentum and are free to look at other schemes in South Africa.
