From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Die Matie is a student newspaper at the University of Stellenbosch. Founded in 1941, Die Matie is published every two weeks during the academic year. The editorial content includes sections on news, student life, sport, arts and entertainment, current affairs and news from other campuses. The entire production of Die Matie – from photos, articles and advertisements to page layout and distribution – is managed by the editorial staff; all students.



On August 1, 1941, the first issue of Die Matie student newspaper was published in Stellenbosch.


8,000 copies of the newspaper are distributed on the main campus of Stellenbosch, as well as on the three satellite campuses, the medical campus at Tygerberg, military campus at Saldanha and business school in Bellville. Die Matie has an estimated readership of 16 000 students, staff and Stellenbosch residents. There is an issue of Die Matie on every second Wednesday of the academic term, which also appears within the next 24 hours on their web-page at


With every edition of Die Matie a pre-elected editorial team member has the responsibility of compiling a supplement, either on: motoring, lifestyle, travel, science & technology and health. The editor of this supplement is expected to gather advertisements for the supplement (as ads pay for the printing of the supplement), the collection of editorial content, photos and for the layout of the supplement.


Although Die Matie receives a small subsidy from Stellenbosch University's Student Representative Council all printing costs and some of the office upkeep is covered by advertisements, which are the responsibility of Die Matie's advertising manager (also a student and member of the editorial team).
