UFS Qwaqwa campus sets deadline for applications
2004-11-11

The University of the Free State’s (UFS) Qwaqwa campus is preparing for the first round of applications for admittance to study in 2005. The closing date for applications is 30 November 2004.

“This applies to first-year students, senior students who have interrupted their studies for at least one year and undergraduate students from other educational institutions,” said Mr Vernon Collett, Registrar: Academic Student Services at the UFS.

According to Mr Collett, all applications that are received after 30 November 2004 and up to no later than 1 February 2005, will be regarded as pending.

“Since student numbers are now limited by government policy and depending on availability in educational programmes, these applications will be subject to consideration by the relevant dean,” said Mr Collett.

Prospective students who want to apply must pay a non-refundable fee of R100 into a designated account, which will be provided when the application form is sent to them. The signed application form must be accompanied by a certified copy of the prospective student’s identity document or passport and a proof of payment of the application fee. The application form of a minor must be signed by his/her parent or guardian and the field of study should be clearly indicated.

“A total of 2088 students are registered at the UFS’ Qwaqwa campus this year. We expect a considerable amount of applications and foresee that our numbers for next year will be similar to what it is now,” said Mr Collett.

First-time entering first-year students will be welcomed by the Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the UFS, Prof Frederick Fourie, on 15 January 2005 at 11:00 in the Nelson Mandela Hall on campus.

Prospective students who want to apply or who have any enquiries can call (058) 718-5000 or visit the UFS’ Qwaqwa campus web site at www.uovs.ac.za.
