UFS celebrates multi-campus system

Festivities have started at the University of the Free State to celebrate  10 years of the multi-campus system this year.

Uniqwa – as it was known when it was still part of the University of the North, was incorporated into the UFS in 2003, becoming the Qwaqwa Campus.

Following shortly on this event, a satellite campus of the Vista University also became part of the UFS family and was renamed to the South Campus.

The multi-campus system enables the UFS to offer a comprehensive choice of study programmes. “Our multi-campus system offers greater access to higher education with the Qwaqwa Campus offering tuition in the faculties of the Humanities, Education, Economic and Management Sciences as well as Natural and Agricultural Sciences,” says Dr Choice Makhetha, Vice-Rector: External Affairs.

“On the other hand,” Dr Makhetha continues,“the South Campus strategically covers learners let down by the South African school system by offering them extended programmes that would ultimately help them enter the mainstream programmes successfully.”
