Vista students complete new B.Sc. programme
2007-06-18

 

Students from the University of the Free State's (UFS) Vista Campus that enrolled in the four-year B.Sc. programme in 2003 at the former Vista University received their degrees during the recent autumn graduation ceremony. The students obtained their degrees within the minimum prescribed time of four years as indicated by the model developed at the Vista University. After the incorporation of the Vista University into the UFS, the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences was the first faculty to implement the new model. Later on a similar model was also introduced in the faculties of the Humanities, Law and Economic and Management Sciences. The model enables academically underdeveloped students to access the sciences and have their potential developed in a foundation year added to the customary three-year B.Sc. programme. Pictured here with the students are Prof. Herman van Schalkwyk (Dean: Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences) and next to him is Mrs Sheila Vrahimis (Lecturer in Concepts of General Science at the UFS). All the graduates are former students of Ms Vrahimis.
