|Language policy |
From 2014 onwards, all undergraduate students can receive their lectures in their preferred language, Afrikaans or English. All test- and examination papers and assignments are also given in both Afrikaans and English, and students may answer any question paper or assignment in Afrikaans or English.
When a module is offered in more than one class group (all first-year modules and many second-year modules), then the module will be offered in parallel medium (at least one class group in Afrikaans and at least one class group in English). When a module is offered in one class group, then simultaneous interpretation is offered, in other words when the lecturer speaks Afrikaans, then the lecture is interpreted into English and when the lecturer speaks English, then the lecture is interpreted into Afrikaans. Each student can personally choose whether or not to use the interpretation.
All our postgraduate programmes are taught in English.
