The history of Stellenbosch University (SU) dates as far back as the 17th century, when regular school education was initiated in the town of Stellenbosch in 1685.

The student enrolments for 2014 show an increase of 4.4% relative to the 2013 figure.​​​​ The main campus in the picturesque university town of Stellenbosch in the heart of the Western Cape winelands is quite an attraction for students.
