  • Once we receive your application we will confirm receipt and it will be processed.  It will take at least 4-6 weeks from the deadline of applications before you receive feedback.
  • Your application is sent to the central admissions office where a student number is created. It is also sent to the relevant academic department(s) for approval.  The department(s) can take up to 14 days and sometimes even longer to review your application and to give us feedback.  
  • Please note that even though you have been accepted by your home university to go on exchange the academic department at Stellenbosch University reserves the right to determine whether you meet with their requirements for admission to courses within their department.  Once we receive feedback from the department we will inform you of the outcome of your application.  If you have not submitted any course requests your application will not be processed.
  • Once you have been admitted by an academic department, we will issue a letter of admission. Your letter of admission will be sent to your exchange coordinator at your home university.  You will need this letter to apply for the study permit at the nearest South African mission in your own country.
