The UFS Media Office, situated in the Department of Communication and Marketing, connects the UFS with the media worldwide.

Our team of writers and multimedia content creators is keeping staff, students, stakeholders, and the general public abreast of all the current news, achievements, latest research, and important developments happening at the UFS.

We also facilitate opinion articles on the latest topics and news happening in South Africa and abroad, while connecting media practitioners with our team of experts on a variety of topics.

We liaise with mainstream media and specialist publications and platforms, providing information, responding to news queries, and facilitating visits to our three campuses.
