UFS Postgraduate School

The UFS Postgraduate School is mandated with supporting the university community with services and information resources meant to support the university in its quest to reach its teaching, learning, research, and community engagement goals. The University of the Free State made an institutional commitment to excellence in postgraduate education and established the Postgraduate School (PGS) in 2011.

Research excellence is often endorsed as a means of proclaiming an ideal for the highest attainment of quality in research at higher education institutions. This proclamation, however, pushes the focus onto the outputs of your work as a postgraduate student, both as a measure of institutional productivity, and as a reflection of your research skill. The Postgraduate School provides additional support to that which is provided by faculties and departments in the form of workshops, courses, and other presentations, which equip the students with the requisite skills for successful completion of their postgraduate education.

Students are the heartbeat of the UFS Postgraduate School

In 2020
  • 235 master's students received funding
