University of the Free State

Bloemfontein, South Africa



The multicultural, bilingual university offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in seven disciplines to 33,000 students across three campuses in the Free State Province in central South Africa. This multiyear grant through the We Succeed, or Siyaphumelela, initiative enables the university to improve its collection, analysis and integration of student data with research, information technology, academic development, planning and academic divisions to increase South African university-student success.
