UFS Brand Narrative


Long version of the narrative:
The University of the Free State (UFS) creates opportunities and growth through leading, learning and teaching, focused research, and impactful engagement with society. We offer world-class benefits to all individuals in a transformed and inclusive environment. What makes us special is that our students are holistically supported to achieve some of the highest success rates in the country and they are highly employable. What’s more, we produce research that has industry and social impact and real-world application. Our culture promotes equity, Ubuntu, and accountability. We address challenges and issues as they emerge, and we deal with them openly in a way that promotes social justice and human rights. Situated in the heart of South Africa, our character of caring and diversity translates into an outstanding university experience.
