University of the Free State (UFS) Pages

The University of the Free State (UFS) (UFS) is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in South Africa. It opened its doors in 1904 on the Bloemfontein Campus with a mere six students in the Humanities. Since then, our institution has grown to more than 31 000 students, spread across seven faculties over three campuses.

In addition to the founding campus, the university has a South Campus in Bloemfontein. This smaller campus provides alternative access to higher education for promising students who have not obtained the required marks in their final school examinations. Our vibrant Qwaqwa Campus in the Eastern Free State serves a rapidly-growing number of rural students from the immediate area and surrounding provinces. 

University of the Free State (UFS) Ranking, South African universities dominated a pilot list that ranked 30 of Africa’s top institutions. A total of 11 South African universities made the Times Higher Education (THE) Africa University Ranking.
