State of our campuses: Academic activities suspended on UFS Bloemfontein Campus

All academic activities on the Bloemfontein Campus of the University of the Free State (UFS) have been suspended with immediate effect –- including tests and lectures. This decision by the senior leadership comes after a growing unease on campus resulting from this morning’s announcement on tuition fees by Minister Blade Nzimande, Minister of Higher Education and Training.  A further announcement about the continuation of the academic programme for the rest of the week will be made by 20:00 this evening.

Regular updates will be available on the UFS website, UFS Twitter and Facebook platforms.
