UFS extends exchange agreement with USA university
2008-08-13

 

A delegation from the University of the Free State's (UFS) Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences recently visited the Virginia Tech University (VT) in the United States of America (USA) to confirm and extend the existing student exchange agreements between the two institutions. During the visit the agreement, which started in 1997, was extended for the next five years. More than 150 students from both institutions have already taken part in this exchange agreement and it is the most successful student exchange agreement that VT is involved in. Although agricultural students from the UFS initially took part in the agreement, it was extended to other departments in the faculty and also to the rest of the UFS. Signing the agreement are Dr Sharron Quisenberry, Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture and Biological Sciences at VT and Prof. Herman van Schalkwyk, Dean of the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the UFS.
