Students who will not be able to secure space to study in 2021 are advised to register on the Department of Higher Education and Training’s Central Applications Clearing House (CACH) system.
The system records information of students who want to enter a university or TVET college without them having to stand in long queues at each institution, and improves their chance of finding a space.
Prospective students can access the CACH by sending an SMS with their name and ID number to 49200, or by visiting https://cach.dhet.gov.za/ to register their details.
Applications to study at Stellenbosch University in 2021 closed last year, and we will be accepting new applications for this academic year. Applications for the 2021 academic year will open in March 2021.
