Overall Reviews at Stellenbosch University

Student Assistant | Stellenbosch, Western Cape | 21 Jan 2020
Productive and fun place!
Wonderful space for students to start getting some work experience while studying. Learning how to time management everything in your life and actually feeling like you are contributing towards a team.
Tutor (m/w/d) | Stellenbosch, Western Cape | 12 Oct 2017
Harmonious working environment
I thoroughly enjoyed working with the department of Economics at Stellenbosch University as a tutor. The department, as the management in this regard, made it very easy for us to do our work properly. I was provided with all that I thought I needed and beyond that. The training provided was of a fairly good standard. There was also enough time for me to work on tutoring, lecturing, my academic work, and also to partake in things I like, for example, working out and playing football.
Committee Member | Sonop, North West | 02 Oct 2019
Productive, challenging and fun working place
Being part of the 2015/2016 House Committee had various challenges related to politics and safety such as the Fees Must Fall Movement. Besides that, as a team, we learnt to manage, motivate, support and lead a residence of over a 150 women that is strong minded, driven and diverse. It was fun to be part of such a dynamic and diverse residence but it was also challenging to balance both the studies, leadership and social activities. However, I learnt a lot about myself and the above mentioned skills and for that I am grateful. I have used these skills in both life and work and it has changed my manner of thinking and approaching any situation.

productive and academic
students applications for financial aid involved accepting incomplete forms and contacting parents or guardians to forward all outstanding documents. alphabetical filing was important as one had to refer back to files to add information that would come later on.
Prosflexible hours
Consbalancing work with studies was sometimes difficult
Marketing Communications Coordinator | Tygerberg Hills, Western Cape | 16 Oct 2017
Department of Local Government
I will check out my e-mails and respond accordingly. Check my weekly plan schedule for follow ups of the day. I will attend meetings internally or externally. Liaise with Communication contacts just to find out how they are doing in current projects in their various municipalities. Write articles from events I recently attended.
ConsLong hours away from home
Student Mentor | Stellenbosch, Western Cape | 26 Jun 2015
Friendly work environment
Stellenbosch University offers a friendly work environment with many opportunities for bettering ones self. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the students and helping them towards their degree.
Senior Administrative Officer | Stellenbosch, Western Cape | 12 Apr 2016
Good, challenging and friendly environment.
Coming to work with positive attitude, working in really good conditions and environment overall. Seeing that you spend most of your time at the office I've learned that you need to make the most of it and help building a positive and healthy office atmosphere. Management normally support us as staff and help us in staying positive and focused. Co workers normally friendly and helpful and also adds to you being positive about your workplace. The hardest part of my job is that you cannot really plan your day, you try to, but when you get here, there's always some stuff that you need to attend to first or some problem that must be resolved, which normally takes up time, and in the end you day did not go as you planned. Enjoyable part is being in a senior position in my department, gives me some flexi time and allows me to delegate, which makes things easier for me.
ProsFlexi time, space for career growth.
ConsNothing really
