About the South Campus

Our South Campus provides alternative access to higher education for promising students who did not obtain the required marks in their final school examinations. Several programmes are in place that off er students the opportunity to access higher education. Th rough these programmes, students can ultimately enter the mainstream curriculum after completing the preparation courses. By offering this opportunity, students who might otherwise not have been able to enter university, now get to develop their full potential and realise their dreams.

Since its incorporation in 2004, the campus has been playing a significant role in the economy of the region, the enhancement of its people, as well as being a hub for distance-learning programmes offered by the UFS. Th is campus, nestled in the hills overlooking Bloemfontein, can accommodate 4 000 students.

The South Campus offers the following programmes:

We also address our social responsibility through a variety of collaborative projects in schools, such as the Schools Partnership Projects (SPP), Creative Clubs, TopKids, In-Service Education and Training (INSET), and the Internet Broadcast Project (IBP).
