The University of the Free State (UFS) is on course to becoming a research university that is ranked among the best in the world. That was the message that came out at the launch of the 2011 Annual Research Report where the university celebrated ten years of research excellence. Prof. Driekie Hay, Vice Rector: Academic, delivered the keynote address, highlighting many of the research successes of the last ten years. Some of the achievements outlined were the university being awarded its first three South African Research Chairs Iniatitive (SARChi) Chairs, the establishment of a Postgraduate School, the first of its kind at a residential public university in South Africa and the launch of the Strategic Academic Cluster initiative.
