Language policy

The North-West University has a language policy that is flexible, functional and multilingual. As the majority of students on the Potchefstroom campus are Afrikaans speaking, the tuition and communication language on the campus is Afrikaans. In certain undergraduate fields of study educational interpreting (Afrikaans to English) is offered. Educational interpreting means that while lectures are being presented, they are immediately interpreted into English.
