Centre again boasts with the most international students
2008-02-19

 

The Master's Degree in the Development Studies Programme, presented by the Centre for Development Support at the University of the Free State (UFS) this year again boasts with the most international students registered for a masters programme at the UFS. The programme is designed for people currently working in a development-related context, or who intend to do so. This year 152 applications were received, from which only 66 were accepted. Of those, almost 73% are from African countries. Last year 64 students were registered for the course. The programme's first contact session took place recently and was attended by, from the left: Ms Dorie Olivier (Programme Co-ordinator of the UFS Centre for Development Support), Prof. Tienie Crous (Dean of the UFS Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences), Ms Lindiwe Dladla (student from Swaziland), and Prof. Lucius Botes (Programme Director: Centre for Development Support). Ms Dladla received a Graça Machel Scholarship of almost R32 000 which was awarded to her by the Canon Collins Trust.
