Live in the mountains of South Africa’s beautiful Western Cape Province, in a small, historic town only 45 minutes from Cape Town, the country’s most cosmopolitan city.
The small size of the town, combined with its proximity to large, cosmopolitan Cape Town, work together to maximize local cultural immersion opportunities while facilitating access to beaches, museums, cultural centers, and places of historic importance. Stellenbosch itself is a major destination for art, culture, dining, outdoor recreation enthusiasts, and wine connoisseurs, but students interested in exploring beyond the local area can utilize public transportation for daytrips into the Cape Town area to visit Table Mountain, Robben Island, Greenmarket Square, the city’s 20+ museums, and the Cape of Good Hope, among other attractions.
Enjoy local outdoor sports and activities including road biking, hiking, and canoeing, as well as one of National Geographic's World's 20 Best Surf towns less than an hour away
