The International Affairs portfolio of the Student Representative Council (SRC) hosted a welcoming session for international first-entry students at the Bloemfontein Campus.

Tumelo Moreri, SRC member: International Affairs, said there are approximately 2 000 international students who are registered at the university. The students come from 46 countries around the world, not just from Africa.

In her welcoming speech, Tumelo urged the students to apply to the Student Council. “Your presence on this campus has to be felt as international students.”

Director of the Office for International Affairs, Mrs Dineo Gaofhiwe-Ingram, was among the speakers at the event. She advised students to realise the importance of being at the University of the Free State and urged them to interact and be part of student life. The overall message was to engage in the various structures the varsity has to offer. Mrs Gaofhiwe-Ingram told them not be silent, but that their voices should be heard as they also form an important part of the Kovsie family.
