Outbound Students


The University of the Free State is always seeking to avail opportunities to students who are interested in studying abroad and explore other different academic and social lived experiences. The study abroad opportunities among other things helps to enhance academic acumen, leadership skills and socio-cultural experiences.  Study abroad exchange programmes broadens one’s worldview and way of thinking, it also gives our students a competitive edge for future career prospects, which in turn, benefit the community of UFS with the knowledge and experience received.

The Office for International Affairs (OIA) assists with partnership programmes which most of them are able to support the mobility of staff and students from UFS. The OIA is responsible for collating and sharing of international scholarships to UFS students who are interested in study abroad.
