Fees ("Exchange")

Exchange students receive a tuition waiver based on the exchange agreement between Stellenbosch University and their home institution. This will differ on the level and type of agreement that your home institution has with Stellenbosch University. If your institution has a faculty/departmental level agreement you have to take AT LEAST 2/3rds of your coursework in this faculty/department to qualify for a tuition waiver for all courses.

Exchange students are expected to pay a non-refundable Exchange Administrative Fee (EAF) of ZAR 7695 prior to registration at Stellenbosch University.

The EAF comprises of the International Registration Fee (IRF) and a Service Fee.

Service fees may be utilised for services such as internet, photocopying, printing, washing quota, gym membership, IT services, society memberships, etc. Only two services are compulsory to be deducted from the student’s service fee, which is the student card (± R 90), and the Network Availability Fee (± ZAR 600). If you spend more than the service fee allocated amount, you need to pay the outstanding amount prior to your departure. Failure to settle the outstanding amount, will result in your transcript being withheld.

Please contact suifinance@sun.ac.za for all financial enquiries.

You will receive an invoice together with your letter of admission indicating the amount payable, what the amount may be utilized for and the banking details of Stellenbosch University. You will not be able to register unless you have paid your fees.
