UFS supports its international students
2017-11-21

The executive management of the University of the Free State (UFS) is aware of the political situation in Zimbabwe and the ongoing developments that transpired since the past weekend.

“The current situation in Zimbabwe is impacting students from Zimbabwe within South Africa, on the African continent, and elsewhere in the world. It is understandable that students are experiencing uncertainty about their studies and their future; some may also experience challenges to return home after completion of their examinations and/or studies in South Africa,” says Prof Francis Petersen, Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS.

According to Prof Petersen, the university fully supports its Zimbabwean community during this time, and is continually monitoring the situation. “We have reached out to our Zimbabwean students on campus, and will assist where necessary,” says Prof Petersen.

Students and staff are welcome to contact the Office for International Affairs at 051 401 9058 or hagenmeiercca@ufs.ac.za.

There are 381 students from Zimbabwe studying at the UFS.
