Bloemfontein - Former students at the University of the Free State requiring only one or two modules to achieve a degree can complete their studies for free next year, the university said on Tuesday.

The UFS invited all former students between 2005 and 2010 who require one or two modules for the completion of a degree, diploma or certificate to complete their studies for free, under certain conditions.

UFS spokesperson Lacea Loader said in a statement that the invitation formed part of its 'Study-4-Free project'.

Under the project former students with a maximum of two outstanding modules may apply for the opportunity of completing those modules free-of-charge.

This was a once-off offer which would cover only tuition and registration fees.

Loader said students would have to meet certain criteria and apply in order to take part in the "amnesty" offer.

Only former UFS students who were registered between 2005 and 2010 would be considered and the offer was applicable to Bachelors and Honours degrees, diplomas and certificates, with the added condition that the outstanding modules were still part of the university's current curriculum.

When a student is approved to be part of the project, he or she may only complete their outstanding modules during the 2012 academic year.

"If a student should fail for any reason to complete the one or two modules in 2012, they will not be able to take up the offer again," said Loader.

Students who meet the criteria can apply by sending their full name and surname, their UFS student number, the faculty in which they were registered and the name of the outstanding degree, diploma or certificate in question to study4free@ufs.ac.za.

The closing date for applications would be July 31 2011.
