3 General Information STANDING INVITATION TO PAST STUDENTS The Registrar cordially invites all past students of Stellenbosch University to notify him in writing of any change of address. The Registrar also welcomes news of distinctions, academic or other, won by our past students, and would appreciate being informed of the titles of any of their publications. The Senior Director: Library and Information Services would be equally happy to receive copies of such publications on behalf of the University Library. SUMMARY: LANGUAGE POLICY AND PLAN The official Language Policy and Plan of Stellenbosch University was approved by the Council of the University in The following summary is provided in the interests of brevity, but must be read in conjunction with, and is subject to, the full Language Policy and Plan. The full version is available at A. Language Policy 1. The University is committed to the use and sustained development of Afrikaans as an academic language in a multilingual context. Language is used at the University in a manner that is directed towards its engagement with knowledge in a diverse society. 2. The University acknowledges the special status of Afrikaans as an academic language and accepts the responsibility to promote it. At the same time, it takes account of the status of English as an international language of communication and of isixhosa as an emerging academic language. 3. The University distinguishes between the use of the three languages in the following manner: - Afrikaans is by default the language of learning and teaching at undergraduate level, while English is used to a greater extent at the postgraduate level; - isixhosa is promoted as an emerging academic language. The University creates opportunities for students and staff to acquire communication skills in isixhosa. 4. The institutional language of the University is, by default, Afrikaans, while English is also used, depending on the circumstances, as an internal language of communication. All three languages are used, where possible, for external communication. B. Language Plan 1. The Language Plan distinguishes between the implementation of the policy in learning and teaching situations and in the support services and management. 2. Choices between various language options may be made in learning and teaching situations, depending on the language abilities of the lecturer and the composition of the students and programme. These language options are arranged in a hierarchy. Reasons must be provided for deviating from the default option (see point 4 for details). In extraordinary and compelling circumstances the University may deviate from the language specification of a module or programme, on condition that any such deviation must be reviewed at the end of each semester to determine whether its continuation remains justified. The deans manage this process, reporting on it to the Executive Committee (Senate). The Language Committee must be informed of any deviation from the language specification of a module or programme and must be given the opportunity to enquire about such deviation, where necessary. 2

4 3. Three general guidelines apply with regard to the language of learning and teaching in class: - Modules in which a language is taught are conducted mainly in the language in question (e.g. isixhosa is taught mainly in isixhosa, Mandarin in Mandarin) and tasks, tests and examinations are set and answered accordingly. - Questions papers in all other modules are set in Afrikaans and English and students may answer in Afrikaans or English. - Except in cases where the aim of the module is language acquisition or the study of the language, students may ask questions and expect answers in Afrikaans or English. 4. Departments choose and implement the various language specifications as follows (the above three points apply generally for all options): A Specification* Rationale Applies as the default mode for all undergraduate modules. No reasons need to be given for exercising this option. Characteristics - Teaching is mainly in Afrikaans - Study material such as textbooks, notes, transparencies, electronic learning and teaching material may be in Afrikaans and/or English - Study framework is in Afrikaans and English. T Specification (bilingual classes) Rationale Is used for classes where - students language competence requires greater use of English - a programme offered is unique to the University - multilingualism is important in the context of a specific occupation - the lecturer does not yet have an adequate command of Afrikaans. Characteristics - Teaching is in Afrikaans for at least 50% of the time. - Textbooks and reading matter are in Afrikaans and/or English. - Study notes, transparencies and electronic learning and teaching material are fully in Afrikaans and English, or alternately in Afrikaans and English. E Specification (English as the main medium of instruction) Rationale Is used only in highly exceptional circumstances for - programmes unique in South Africa - programmes in which students do not have adequate language skills (foreign or English- speaking students) - modules in which the lecturer does not have a command of Afrikaans - regional co-operation and strategic aims necessitate English. Characteristics - Teaching is primarily in English. - Textbooks and reading matter are in Afrikaans and/or English. 3

5 - Notes are in English with core notes in Afrikaans. - Transparencies and electronic learning and teaching material are in English. A & E Specification (separate streams in Afrikaans and English) Rationale Used only in most exceptional circumstances when academically and financially justified and attainable for - modules with large numbers of students - regional co-operation and attaining strategic goals - programmes offered by satellite technology or interactive telematic education. Characteristics - The characteristics of the A and E options apply respectively here. *For both of these options an academic language competence in Afrikaans and English is essential for successful study. 5. Afrikaans is the default language of communication for the support services and management. All official documents of the University are available in Afrikaans. Default does not, however, mean exclusively : important policy documents are available in English and communication with staff is also conducted in English. Guidelines are provided for the language to be used at meetings. Documents relating to the service conditions for staff are available in Afrikaans, English and isixhosa. 6. Written communication with students is conducted in Afrikaans and English, and recruitment is conducted, where possible, also in isixhosa. Oral communication is conducted in Afrikaans or English, according to the language of preference of the student. 7. The corporate image of the University reflects the Language Policy and Plan. 8. A Language Committee is appointed by the Council to implement the Language Policy and Plan. 9. The Language Centre assumes the responsibility for the provision of and/or co-ordination of the relevant language support required for the effective implementation of the Language Policy and Plan. CODE OF CONDUCT FOR LANGUAGE IN THE CLASSROOM This Code of Conduct has been drawn up in order to provide practical guidelines for understanding and implementing the Language Policy and Plan of the US, which was accepted by the University Council in The Council regards it as important that the Language Policy and Plan of the US should be implemented with integrity. The Code is offered as an aid for dealing constructively with possible difficulties or uncertainties. The core principle governing the day-to-day use of language on the campus is that all staff, students and clients of the University are responsible for language matters and may have the expectation that disputes will be approached and dealt with in a spirit of co-operation in which workable solutions are sought. A distinction is drawn in the Code of Conduct between the responsibilities and expectations of staff and of students. Complaints on language matters of an academic nature will be dealt with in accordance with standard procedures. The Language Policy and Plan sets the minimum language requirements for students studying at Stellenbosch University (Language plan 2002:5): As a general rule, students taking an A module or a T module require an academic language proficiency in both Afrikaans and English for effective study at the undergraduate level. A higher level of academic language proficiency is required for postgraduate study. Lecturers, 4

6 especially with regard to their obligations to set and assess assignments, tests and question papers in English and Afrikaans, will be expected within a reasonable time from their appointment to develop sufficient receptive skills (listening and reading) in Afrikaans and English to be able to follow discussions in class, to set assignments and examination question papers in both languages and to be able to understand students answers in both languages. They should also be capable of judging the equivalence of translations and of fairly assessing answers in Afrikaans and English. Lecturers Responsibilities Lecturers bear the responsibility of: 1. implementing the language specifications of the module being taught in accordance with the requirements of the Language Plan (see especially paragraph 3 of the Language Plan). 2. revising and adjusting the language specifications where necessary and according to the circumstances (new text books, other lecturers). 3. informing students briefly at the beginning of the teaching of the module, orally and in the module framework, of the choices and alternative for which the language specifications make provision. 4. ensuring that questions in assignments, tests and examinations have exactly the same content in English and Afrikaans. 5. developing sufficient language proficiency to be able to mark assignments, tests and examinations in Afrikaans and English, or making other satisfactory arrangements that it takes place. 6. ensuring that, in accordance with the guidelines for the T option (see of the Language Plan), students language proficiency is sufficiently developed, and the necessary measures are in place to ensure subject-specific language proficiency in Afrikaans and English. 7. striving at all times to act courteously and accommodatingly in situations involving language use (e.g. when questions are asked in English in a class where the language specification for the module is A). Lecturers Expectations Lecturers can expect students to: 1. take note of the characteristics of the language specification applicable to the specification laid down for the module. (See paragraph 3, Language Plan). 2. inform the lecturer of their needs with regard to academic language skills. 3. respect the spirit of the Language Policy and Plan, especially with regard to the development of skills in a language which is not their language of choice, by deliberately paying attention to it, taking part actively in class and working on their knowledge of subject terminology and subject discourse in both languages. This expectation applies especially to the T Specification for modules. Students Responsibilities Students bear the responsibility of: 1. ascertaining the language options for each module and noting especially the consequences; e.g. that translations will not be available in some instances. 2. being honest and open-hearted about their language skills and taking the responsibility for early and appropriate action if they should experience difficulties. 3. deliberately developing the receptive skills (listening and reading) in the language not of choice for learning and teaching by active participation in class. 5

7 4. buying and using the prescribed material (especially text books) to improve their language skills in the subject. 5. being courteous and accommodating, and acting accordingly, in situations where language use is at issue, e.g. with regard to the difficulties of the minority group in the class. 6. accepting that one or a few students, because of inadequacies in his/their language proficiency, may not exercise or try to exercise a right of veto with regard to the use of Afrikaans or English in the class situation. Students Expectations Students can expect that: 1. help with language skills development will be provided should their academic language proficiency in Afrikaans and/or English be inadequate. 2. they can ask questions and conduct discussions in Afrikaans or English (unless the other languages are required, as in language modules), taking into account their own and the lecturer s language proficiency. 3. Afrikaans and English versions of assignments and question papers will be available and will have the same content. 4. there will be a sensitivity for language difficulties, so that language errors made under examination conditions will be assessed with discretion. NON-RACISM Stellenbosch University admits students of any race, colour, nationality or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programmes and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the University. The University does not discriminate on the basis of race, colour, nationality or ethnic origin in the implementation of its educational policies, its scholarship and loan programmes, or its sports programmes. PLEASE NOTE 1. In this publication any expression signifying one of the genders includes the other gender equally, unless inconsistent with the context. 2. Before making a final choice of modules (subjects), every student should closely consult the relevant timetables. Should it then become apparent that two modules fall in the same time slot on a particular timetable, the University will not allow registration as a student in both of them for the same year/semester since they will be an inadmissible combination. 3. The University reserves the right to amend the Calendar at any time. The Council and the Senate of the University accept no liability for any inaccuracies there may be in the Calendar. Every reasonable care has, however, been taken to ensure that the relevant information to hand as at the time of going to press, is given fully and accurately in the Calendar. 4. In the event of uncertainty or a dispute regarding information in Part 6 of the Calendar, the final interpretation will be based on the Afrikaans version. 5. Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the Calendar contain general information applicable to all students. Students are urged to note with special care the content of the Provisions relating to Examinations and Promotions in the "University Examinations" chapter of Part 1 of the Calendar. 6

10 UNDERGRADUATE ENROLMENT MANAGEMENT In order to meet the targets of Council with regard to the size (the total number of students) and shape (fields of study and diversity profile) of the student body of Stellenbosch University (SU), it is necessary to manage the undergraduate enrolments at SU. SU s total number of enrolments is managed to be accommodated by its available capacity. SU offers a balanced package of programmes covering all of three main study areas, namely (a) the humanities, (b) the economic and management sciences, and (c) the natural sciences, agricultural sciences, health sciences and engineering (Science, Engineering and Technology or SET). SU is committed to the advancement of diversity. Undergraduate enrolment management at SU adheres to the framework of the national higher-education system. A well grounded cohesion between national and institutional goals, respecting important principles such as institutional autonomy, academic freedom and public responsibility, is pursued. The following points of departure apply: - The expansion of academic excellence by maintaining high academic standards. - The maintenance and improvement of high success rates. - The fulfilment of SU s commitment to redress, to social responsibility and to contributing towards the training of future role models from all population groups. - The expansion of access to higher education especially for students from educationally disadvantaged and economically needy backgrounds who possess the academic potential to study at SU with success. Due to the limited availability of places and the strategic and purposeful management of enrolments, not all undergraduate applicants who meet the minimum requirements of a particular programme will automatically gain admission. Details about the selection procedures and admission requirements for undergraduate programmes are given on and on the faculty s web page at All undergraduate prospective students with the 2013 intake and beyond in mind must write the National Benchmarking Test (NBT). Consult the NBT web site ( or the SU web site at for more information on the National Benchmarking Test. The results of the National Benchmarking Tests may be used by SU for the following purposes (details are available at - Supporting decision-making about the placement of students in extended degree programmes, - selection, and - curriculum development. 9

11 Faculty of Law The Law Faculty of Stellenbosch University (SU) was established in 1921 and is situated in the historical Ou Hoofgebou (Old Main Building). The Faculty comprises the following three Departments: The Department of Mercantile Law, the Department of Private Law and the Department of Public Law. The extended law library comprises a large section of the upper floor of the JS Gericke Library. 1. DEGREES AWARDED IN THE FACULTY OF LAW Legum Baccalaureus (LLB) Legum Magister (LLM) Legum Doctor (LLD) Postgraduate Diploma in Tax Law (PDTL) Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law (PDIPL) Since 1998 a four-year LLB degree programme has been offered and the curricula of the existing BA (Law) and BComm (Law) programmes have been adapted accordingly. This LLB is offered as the basic law degree programme by the Faculty and may be followed over a minimum period of four years. The BA (Law) and BComm (Law) degree programmes require three years of study and are integrated with the curriculum of the fouryear LLB programme. On completion of a BA (Law) or BComm (Law), a student may enrol for the LLB and complete the final two years of this programme, hereafter he obtains the LLB degree. Such a student will accordingly, after five years of successful study, obtain both a BA (Law) or BComm (Law) and a LLB degree. Since 1999 a three-year postgraduate LLB programme has been offered, based on the curriculum of the four-year LLB programme. A BAccLLB programme has also been offered since This programme enables students to complete both the BAcc and LLB degrees within a minimum period of five years. 2. SELECTION POLICY (UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMMES) Since 2004 a selection policy has been implemented for all undergraduate law programmes. This policy provides for the limitation of the number of new first-year law students accepted for the following programmes: the four-year LLB, BA (Law), BComm (Law) and BAccLLB. In terms of the policy, all applicants are required to undergo the National Benchmark Test. The results of the National Benchmark Test will be considered, in conjunction with school results, in the relation 20:80 to place students on a list of academic merit. In line with the University s policy on diversity, the selection process will provide for the admission of students from underrepresented groups. Applicants have to meet the admission requirements as set out further on in 5. Admission Requirements. Note Applications close on 30 June of the relevant year. Prospective students must complete the National Benchmark Test before the aforesaid closing date. 3. STANDING RULES FOR DEAN S CONCESSION EXAMINATIONS (DCES) 1. A final-year student who, when he has taken all the examinations and when all final marks are available, is one module with a credit value of no more than 32 credits in arrears for his degree may subject to the provisions of paragraph 2 below be admitted to a Dean s Concession Examination (DCE) as a concession by the Dean, in consultation with the academic department(s) concerned. 10

12 2. Where a student qualifies for a DCE in an examination module subsequent to the first round of examination (May/June or October/ November), such DCE must be taken during the second round of examination, (June or November/December). The Faculty Secretary must inform the relevant department(s) accordingly, but it remains the responsibility of the student concerned to identify himself as a DCE candidate and to gain the necessary clearance to present himself for the second round of examination. If the student again fails the module, no further DCE will be granted. 3. Where a student qualifies for a DCE subsequent to the second examination opportunity (June or November/December), the DCE must be taken at a specified time before the commencement of lectures in February the next year. 4. The students referred to paragraph 3 above must be identified by the Faculty Secretary, who must send their names to the departments concerned via the Dean s office. The onus, however, will be on the students concerned to apply to the Faculty Secretary in good time about possible admission to the DCE. Students who are granted a DCE must present themselves for the examination, which will be conducted departmentally. 5. DCEs in modules subject to continuous assessment must be taken at the same time as referred to in paragraph 3 above, subject to the procedures laid down in paragraph 4 above. 6. Students who have been granted a DCE must ascertain when and where the DCE in question is to be written and present themselves at such time and place. 7. DCEs are granted only with the approval of the Dean. Under no circumstances may any department grant a DCE without the Dean s approval. No lecturer may give an undertaking to a student in this matter. Note Also take note of the general arrangement regarding DCEs in the Calendar, Part READMISSION OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS Students who are registered for the four-year LLB, three-year LLB, two-year LLB, BAccLLB, BComm (Law) or BA (Law) programme must obtain 0,5 HEMIS credits to automatically qualify for readmission to the following academic year.
