Choosing the Right City for You

A street with houses in Stellenbosch, South Africa.


Spectacular mountain ranges surround Stellenbosch, the university town in the winelands of the Western Cape. The elegant Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian houses that grace the oak tree-lined streets reflect the history of one of South Africa’s oldest towns. Take a stroll and you’ll find interesting museums, open-air coffee shops, bars and bistros and a thriving arts scene; go further afield and you can hike through vineyards, orchards and mountain ranges. The students are an integral part of the town bringing a vibrancy to Stellenbosch’s otherwise tranquil and laid-back atmosphere.

See How It Works

Living here has been great! The flat which I stay in has a community kitchen and common room, and then 4 single rooms with their own bathrooms. The building itself is extremely secure. Stellenbosch has been more than I anticipated, and a great place to stay for international students!

South Africa is beautiful. We have South African students living and going to classes with us which is very cool. We had a field trip to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years…it was really interesting. Our itinerary is packed with awesome classes and excursions.
