UFS: International Support

The UFS has an International Office to support students from abroad, at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The main areas of focus of this portfolio are to professionalise support to international students, to facilitate an increase in international research funding, and to facilitate the further globalisation and internationalisation of the University.

There are approximately 2400 students from more than 50 countries represented on campus, the majority from Africa. The University has a high number of research and exchange agreements with many internationally recognised institutions, contributing towards a diverse, mutually beneficial international culture, within the framework of excellent research, teaching and community service.
