How to apply?

To apply for the double degree programme with Stellenbosch University starting in the winter semester you need to follow the application procedure for the MSc in Development Economics. Same requirements apply (with undergraduate degree and undergraduate thesis being graded no lower than 2.5).

During the application procedure you will be asked to submit an additional letter of motivation explaining your reasons for wanting to pursue this double degree. Please submit this letter along with the rest of the application material.

Please note: You still need to write a separate statement of purpose for the Development Economics programme!

An application is usually possible during April 1st and May 15th. Due to the current corona pandemic, however, there are changes in the application procedure for the winter semester 2020/ 2021:

The application period will probably start on 1 May 2020. The application deadline is set for 15 June 2020.
