Postgraduate Student Tracking

The University of the Free State recognises the importance of tracking, monitoring, and supporting postgraduate students throughout their studies at UFS. Graduate Research Management (GRM) enables the process of monitoring and evaluation of postgraduate students through all postgraduate processes, from first registration to graduation, through the functionality of the current PeopleSoft System. It identifies bottlenecks, opportunities, and risks early (early warning), improves reporting and auditing, monitors the student-staff relationship, assists to balance the academic workload, and governs the postgraduate administrative life cycle.

The portfolio liaises with deans, heads of departments, postgraduate students, and support services to facilitate the research process between all relevant stakeholders. The postgraduate student-tracking portfolio provides university management, deans, and departments with meaningful postgraduate information for planning and monitoring purposes.
