Language Proficiency

Tuition at the UFS is offered in English. The university, therefore, requires that students are proficient in English before they register. An applicant, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level, must have demonstrated a certain level of proficiency in English or Afrikaans by taking the IELTS test (see below). This test is offered by the British Council; either the application or the full report must accompany the application for admission. No student will be admitted without proof thereof.

Minimum requirements

Undergraduate students must obtain four (or more) out of ten on each of the IELTS subjects. Students with a score of four or less out of ten on any of the IELTS subtests will be required to conduct a language proficiency test at our counselling offices. Based on this evaluation, it may be recommended that the prospective student completes a six-month English course in the Department of English before starting with studies. Once successfully completed, students can proceed with the intended course of study, or proceed with both English and the intended course of study. Students registering in terms of any exchange agreement are exempted from these requirements, provided that the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) stipulates their proficiency in English.


Students have to report for first-semester registration in January and at the beginning of July for the second semester. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS MAY NOT REGISTER PROVISIONALLY. Timetables and information on class venues can be obtained from the website: Click on the Students tab.
