The Kovsie men’s and women’s hockey teams have positive expectations for the University Sport South Africa (USSA) national student tournament.

The USSA championships were hosted by the University of the Free State (UFS) from 2 to 6 July 2018. This year’s championships will have 45 competing teams and will thus be the biggest ever USSA hockey tournament.

For the female squad to qualify for the 2019 Varsity Sports tournament, they have to secure a spot among the top-seven teams. In order to get back into the A section, the Kovsie men’s team must win their tournament. 

The matches are scheduled to take place on the UFS Bloemfontein Campus astro fields.

The UFS women’s team, captained by Antonet Louw, is set to play on Monday at 15:35 against Nelson Mandela University (NMU); on Tuesday at 17:00 against the University of Johannesburg (UJ); and on Wednesday at 18:25 against North-West University (NWU). The play-off matches will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

The men’s team, with Cheslyn Neethling as captain, will play on Monday at 17:00 against the Central University of Technology; on Tuesday at 15:35 against the Tswane University of Technology; on Wednesday at 17:00 against the Vaal University of Technology; on Thursday at 18:25 against the University of KwaZulu-Natal; and on Friday at 15:35 against Rhodes University.

UFS postpones examinations to Monday 2 November 2015
2015-10-23

The management of the University of the Free State (UFS) decided today, in line with other universities in the country, to postpone the main examination to Monday 2 November 2015 and the additional examination to 23 November 2015.

The decision comes after students across the country took part in a protest action against the increase of fees in 2016. Students from the UFS participated in the protest from Tuesday 20 October 2015.

Moving the examination by one week will afford all students the opportunity to prepare for their examination and to take the additional assessment opportunities they missed during this past week to make up their predicate mark.

The exam timetable sequence/order remains exactly the same as scheduled and the changed examination timetables have been published on the UFS website; Official Timetables. Students are requested to note the exemptions to the postponement. These exceptions are also published on the UFS website.

Academic and administrative activities will resume on all three campuses of the UFS on Monday 26 October 2015.
