Postgraduate students wishing to register at the UFS must comply with the following:

Evaluation of non-South African first degrees

If you are interested in postgraduate studies at the UFS, and hold a non-South African first degree, your qualification must be evaluated by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) and submitted together with your application form to the UFS.

Please note that all foreign qualifications must be evaluated by the South African Qualifications Authority before an application form is forwarded to the University. It is the responsibility of the prospective student to forward his/her documentation to SAQA.

Please note that all enquiries, payments, follow-up on degree evaluation, etc. is strictly between the applicant and SAQA. The UFS cannot assist in this regard.
