Welcome to the cosmopolitan world of Stenden Higher Education, a world with you at its centre.

A period of study away from home helps you develop and discover skills that you often didn’t know you possessed. It teaches you to work and operate regardless of the different cultural contexts. It also unleashes your potential with respect to your job prospects, as employers are known to value graduates with international experience. Stenden South Africa students have the opportunity to study at one of our campuses in Europe, Africa or Asia. All you have to do is take your pick!

What Can You Expect?

Going on Grand Tour means you will follow a part of your study at one of the Stenden South Africa campus sites abroad. At each campus we work on a modular basis with an interdisciplinary approach. Local teachers and students make the study at one of the campus sites a truly international experience. There are various options, ranging from optional minors, internships or regular modules and semesters.

Who Can Apply?
