As a post-graduate student, I was impressed by the efficiency of the university administration and the friendly helpfulness of academic and administrative staff. Most importantly, the course I attended at Stellenbosch has excellent industry credentials. I can confidently recommend Stellenbosch University to anyone.

This is the Afrikans Univeristy and it is quite big. It started out small and then gradually grew bigger which is why it occupies different streets in the city. The buildings are nondescript and painted in white but because they have beautiful oak lined trees for the dorm bindings, it is very pleasant.
