KovsieFM is the ultimate campus radio station.
We were founded by a group of students and began broadcasting in 1978 inside the UFS campus cafeteria. In 1995, we were granted a broadcasting license by the Independent Broadcasting Authority of South Africa (ICASA), on the frequency 97.0 FM. We broadcast in English, Afrikaans, and Sesotho, and our focus is on the youth between the ages of 15-30. Our mission includes community involvement, training and development, being a platform for local musicians, providing an accurate, unbiased news service, and sustainability.

Transitioning from school to tertiary teaching and learning is a daunting and scary reality for most first-year students.

Transitioning between academic years can sometimes also be challenging. The result is high levels of anxiety and stress. We understand!
At Kovsies, your access to success is very important to us, and we really care. The academic advice service is a key partner in your tertiary studies.

The faculties, in collaboration with the Centre for Teaching and Learning, have dedicated academic advisers to help you better understand how your academic aspirations connect with your dream job.
