The School of Public Leadership

The School is committed to community-focused, nationally and internationally competitive academic and professional teaching, research and service delivery in the fields of planning, public management, public policy analysis, development and environmental management for the participative and equitable promotion of sustainable development.

Consisting of different components, each with a distinct academic area of speciality, the School functions on both the Stellenbosch Campus and Bellville Park Campus of the University.

The taught postgraduate programmes in Public and Development Management are presented by way of lectures in one block presentation over seven days, complemented with interactive telematic broadcasts to locations spread over Southern Africa. The taught, modular, postgraduate programmes in Sustainable Development Planning and Management and Environmental Management comprise the attendance of a block presentation of lectures and seminars over a period of two to three weeks at a time, complemented with study and assignment completion at home.

The School has exchange agreements with universities in Argentina, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, and the USA (Universities of Rutgers and Wyoming). European students often take semester modules at Stellenbosch for credits towards the completion of their degrees.
