June graduations to highlight graduates achievements
Graduates will be celebrating their accomplishments at the June Graduation ceremonies.

June 2018 graduates from the University of the Free State (UFS) Bloemfontein Campus are beginning to prepare for their upcoming graduations. The ceremonies are scheduled to take place at the Callie Human Centre from Wednesday 27 June until Friday 29 June 2018.

The UFS plans to document and highlight the special moments that graduates encounter at this time. A daily update accompanied by photos will be available on the UFS website.

Visit the UFS graduation ceremonies page for more information on the upcoming events. Graduates and students are free to familiarise themselves with the Graduation Guide Booklet which stipulates the necessary information for students to note during the graduation processions.
 
The Graduate Career Guide is also of vital importance as it equips graduates with fundamental knowledge and practical advice about preparing for the world of work.

The UFS founding member for The Journalist
2014-08-07

To all thoughtful South Africans interested in quality journalism and a diversity of ideas

We invite you to go online to be part of the Virtual Launch of a new website called The Journalist.

It will serve as a knowledge bank for our profession. We will be calling everybody to share their expertise because those who build solid institutions and strong institutional memory are guaranteed to succeed as a profession or a nation.

Please go to www.thejournalist.org.za and sign up to our weekly Wednesday newsletter. You will be eligible to be part of a weekly lucky draw for cash prizes until the end of August 2014.

Context and history matters to us: we will start off with the historical background to journalism itself and will feature profiles of pioneer South African journalists across a broad spectrum.

The University of the Free State is the founding member of the site. We are inviting other universities to join the initiative to prepare a premium site with quality academic material to be launched next year.

Two winners of the first lucky draw on Tuesday 12 August 2014 will qualify for a cash prize of R3 000 and a set of four books.

All those who sign up and do not win will be eligible to participate in every subsequent lucky draw. Sign up, write to us, agree, disagree and argue.
