Semester in South Africa

Study in the heart of the Cape Winelands, in the country’s oldest college town. Debate South African politics with the Political Club, learn to sail with the yacht club, or take a world-famous safari to see the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo).

Our Semester in South Africa offers you an amazing study abroad experience in an exotic destination. Our program is housed at Stellenbosch University. Ideally situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, the university is also at the core of Stellenbosch, the country’s oldest college town.  You will enjoy a Mediterranean climate of hot, dry summers and mild winters in a melting pot of cultures and languages while you study abroad in South Africa.

Classes in South Africa’s oldest college town – Stellenbosch University is recognized as one of the top four research universities in South Africa and the university's professors are internationally acclaimed.

A land of adventure – Many regard South Africa as the adventure capital of the world.  Are you interested in the highest bungee jump on the planet, diving with great white sharks, or making a safari to see the Big 5?

Learning Service & Community Engagement Course - In the classroom, you will develop an understanding of the issues affecting community life in South Africa. You then have the opportunity to participate in a service-learning project in your new community. 

Clubs and student organizations – You can debate South African politics with the Political Club, learn to sail with the yacht club, or take up Rugby. If you’re a go-getter and you don’t find a campus club that suits you, you can start your own!
